Okay. We’ll admit it. We love books about crayons.
(mostly because they’re so colourful and fun)
Well, this is a story about a little bundle boy called Harold.
Our hero Harold has a purple crayon. And with that crayon, he draws the world!
This Papa’s palm-sized purple paperback is rich in imagination and its applications. Johnson’s illustrations explore the flexibility of a simple line as Harold makes his purple journey. Purposefully minimal, the pages of Crockett Johnson’s ‘Harold and the Purple Crayon’ allow the imaginative reader to fill in the colours.
The next time you’re in bed, but can’t quite sleep, grab hold of a purple crayon and see where it will take you.
