Harold and the Purple Crayon illustration will appear here.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to draw your own adventure? Harold did. This is a story about how he used a purple crayon. Crockett Johnson wrote Harold?s story called ?Harold and the purple crayon.? He?s the illustrator too. Harold had a purple crayon that he drew with. He drew half a moon, buildings, unfinished mountain, and an apple tree with a monster behind it. Harold drew different things with his imagination.

I thought that the book was full of imagination. I give the author an A+ for this book. I enjoyed this book because I love the imagination in the book. The book made me happy because it was fun when the character changed the pictures on the wall. There is lots of creativity because I never saw anybody draw something and interact with the drawing.

I think you should read ?Harold and the Purple Crayon? because you will really love the imagination the author used to create this story.
