  • small version of an old book Oct 5, 2014
    by Jerce

    I like the large version better. Maybe sellers don't remember the first publication, but I do. I wish they would say it's small.

    by Patricia W

    The book came very quickly which was giood to see. My grandson will receive it for his 1st birthday and like most first year boys he will like it. He is learning purple well also. So I'm sure he will like my reading it to him.

  • A Delicious Book for Children Mar 1, 2012
    by Penny Penn

    Written in the 1950s, this timeless book is a delight for young children and for the child in all of us. Line drawings in purple create a world that beautifully demonstrates the magic of imagination.

    Harold is a very imaginative little boy drawing his way to find his home so he can go to sleep. Cannot go wrong with this book.

  • great! Apr 2, 2009

    i gave this book as a gift at a baby shower. i have never actually heard of the book, but after reading summaries, i think that it would be a great way to inspire creativity and imagination in the young ones. as a little boy builds line upon line with his single crayon, he imagines endless, exciting adventures- there are no limits to his creations (a skill that is so important in life). the processing & shipping of this book was speedy & hassle-free.........great job!
