Imagination is a fabulous gift and Harold is a wonderful example of just how marvelous it can be. Harold is a cherubic boy who decides to go for a “walk in the moonlight.” Armed with a purple crayon, he draws himself a world of full of beauty and adventure. Then, he has to find his way home. Once again, his imagination serves him well. He remembers how he used to see the moon through the window of his room. And so all he needs is to draw a box around the moon – now he is inside looking out.
This is a book that young readers love both to read on their own and to have it read to them.
