My book is about Harold and his purple crayon. The main character in my book is Harold. Harold gets lost and can't find his way home. The lesson learned here is that never get out of your bed unless you need to.

My book is also about that Harold draws things outside. This book reminds me of my brother Noel. He used to color in books that weren't even coloring books! My favorite part is when Harold drew lots of windows and didn't know which one was his. He looks at the moon and finds his home. I think to me that my book is a good one. I think that because it's interesting and fun for me. Also because it's great!

I think some of my classmates will probably read it because my first grade teacher read it to some of them. I think that my friends will like it because Harold draws a lot of funny things.
