About This Book

This popular tale of fantasy, updated from its original publication in 1955, shows the wonder of the human imagination in the travels of a young boy and his purple crayon.

One moonlit night, Harold wanders away from his familiar surroundings out into the world. Along the way, Harold uses his purple crayon to create his own adventures that keep him amused. But little Harold also uses his purple crayon to make his trip easier: he sketches a boat to keep from drowning, a purple pie when his stomach starts to grumble, and important landmarks to help him find his way back home.

Harold's tale shows readers how they can use their own creative talents in the world around them. It is also a valuable resource for teachers who seek to inspire children's self-esteem.
