Crockett Johnson ô Harold and the Purple Crayon text

Harold and the Purple CrayonHim all the while He takes the necessary purple crayon precautions drawing landmarks to ensure he won't get lost; sketching a boat when he finds himself in deep water; and creating a purple pie picnic when he feels the first pangs of hunger I liked Harold and his purple crayon This kid has an imagination He fought beasts made a picnic went out to sea floated on a balloon made giant buildings; and all before bedtime I liked the simplicity of the purple crayonmarker yet what he did with it was anything but simple Very cool book to read before bedtime
