One of the launch titles in the amazing new Essential Picture Book Classics list from HarperCollins, this book is full of funny twists and surprises as young Harold draws himself some wonderful adventures. A collectable classic picture book that every child should read and own. Maurice Sendak says "Harold is a masterpiece".

Armed only with an oversized purple crayon, Harold draws himself a landscape full of beauty and excitement. He conducts his adventure with the utmost care, letting his imagination run free, but keeping his wits about him all the while. This magical journey gives us the wondrous sense that anything is possible. This joyful story has delighted readers of all ages for over fifty years. Essential Picture Book Classics - timeless stories for every child to treasure.
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.

A Delicious Book for Children
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.

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!
