The moon was bright the night that Harold decided he should go for a walk. Armed with only a giant purple crayon, he set out on a journey deep into the world of his own fancy. The key to his walk was simple: he could draw whatever he wanted to and go wherever he wanted. Even if his world is purple, it charms with nothing short or ingenuity. When Harold is hungry he draws himself a picnic; when he wants to find his way back, he draws a landmark. Crockett Johnson's Harold and the Purple Crayon has been a bedtime favourite since it was first published in 1955, loved as much for the illustrations as it is for the drawings within the illustrations.
