Reviews - What do our customers think?
Wonderful book for kids and artists of all ages  May 27, 2010
Great book that will inspire young and old to take up drawing. It's a great story as well as an inspiration to budding artists, showing that by drawing a line, a circle, etc. you can create new worlds. Our favorite part is when Harold is hungry: "There was nothing to eat but pie. But there were all nine kinds of pie that Harold liked best." The nine kinds of pie are never listed, so it is a fun game to play with your kids to see if you can name them. It's also a nice touch that not everything is perfectly drawn, adding to the spontaneous, spur of the moment quality of the book. A timeless classic.
Harold and the Purple Crayon  May 17, 2010
One of the best books for young children ever written. 55 years ago, I loved it and all its sequels as a child; all my nephews and nieces were entranced with the book; and even today, I gave the book to a neighbor for his third birthday, and he and his mother couldn't have been more thrilled and appreciative.
Love Harold. He is such a riot.  May 17, 2010
That Harold....with his blue pajamas and his purple crayon he is such a riot.

If he wants to walk on something he makes his own straight path and then realizes that a straight path is no fun because it leads no where. He wants excitement so he makes his own adventure like walking in to a forest, creating a scary dragon and ends up getting scared by his own imagination. Half way in to his adventures, Harold realizes that he wants to go home and the rest of his adventure is getting himself home. Harold is frantically trying to find the window of his bedroom in the hundreds of windows that he drew. Then he realizes that his window is `always right around the moon'. Sounds like the Akbar-Birbal story in which the guy looses his golden ring some place but is looking under the street light because there is plenty of light under the street light right?! This is the thinking process of a preschool child. Because of their limited life experiences and cognition, they often distort reality in order to fit what is happening to them. Harold is Piaget's pre-operational child, to the T.
Fond memories of Harold!  May 12, 2010
I found this book at the library when I was a kid and fell in love with it. It was from my parent's era but I don't think it will ever go out of style. I have such fond memories of Harold and the adventures he had with his purple crayon, which is also my favorite color. I recommend this book for young kids and their parents, too. Everyone can use an adventure!
Sized "Just Right" for Little Imaginations  Apr 8, 2010
Every year when I read this book to my five-year old kindergarten students, they are totally awed. When I show them the video and give them large pieces of white paper and purple crayons, well, their "writing" simply flows along with Harold's drawings. Later they share their memories of Harold's drawings with their friends and classmates, ready in an instant to say, "Remember when.....?" and know what their friends are talking about. Of all the Harold books, I love this the best. It, like Baby Bear's bed, is sized "just right"!
