Editorial Reviews

The New York Times Book Review - Maria Russo
The immortal Harold—he of the purple crayon—is so justly beloved that his creator's other brilliant books are often overlooked. So it's great to see a spiffy new edition of this funny Groundhog Day tale from 1959.
Chicago Tribune
“This amusing little tale with the absurd twist at the end will assuredly tickle the funny bones of all small children—and their elders as well.”
Elementary English
“A delightful picture book with the usual Crockett Johnson charm.”

For many years the author and illustrator of the popular comic strip Barnaby, Mr. Johnson also illustrated many wonderful children's books, including Ruth Krauss's The Carrot Seed. He is perhaps best remembered for his own slyly engaging books about a small boy named Harold and his journeys with a purple crayon.
