Harold takes his purple crayon and draws himself into and out of adventures. This is an adorable book for infants and toddlers. Just like Harold they can have adventures while being safe at home. Just keep the crayons out of reach. Absolutely delightful!

I grew up on Harold and now share with my grandchildren. We all delight in the innocence with which Harold explores his world, relying on himself and his purple crayon to take him on adventures of possibility.

Bought this recently for a baby shower and is a classic favorite. So much fun watching what Harold does with his crayon. Art and adventure all in one.
