Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
A classic Christmas tale has been reissued by HarperCollins. Harold and his purple crayon are off on an adventure to find a Christmas Tree, but they end up at the North Pole. It is a good thing, because Santa needs help and the resourceful Harold knows just what to do. As with his other adventures, there are plenty of twists and inventive solutions in this delightful whimsical story. 1998 (orig.)
