      I read this many, many times to my twins, and they liked it well enough, but they much preferred Where the Wild Things Are and Stone Soup. I wasn't sure why, but I never gave it much thought until now. Now, you see, my little Scoutie Kat loves Harold and the Purple Crayon, and I think it is because I finally figured out the voice for reading aloud. One night last month we were sitting around, and I was exhausted, so rather than try to muster energy and liven up proceedings, I simply went with my [...]

      Here is the first betrayal in a long life of betrayals, child. Your parents told you it was a classic, didn't they? Their eyes were probably limpid with nostalgia as they gave it to you. "It's about imagination," they simpered. And you took it in your grubby little hands, and you put it in your grubby little mouth, and you thought, "THIS IS BORING." "But it's about how creativity can take you anywhere!" they cried. And "yeah," you babbled: "Anywhere purple." Because that's all it is, child, isn' [...]

      This is a book about an insomniac toddler who gets out of bed and goes wandering around at night armed with a magic crayon. What were his parents thinking? Didn't they realize that you should put toddlers to bed early and make sure they stay there? And didn't they know that you shouldn't give magical objects to young children? Harold could have fallen out of bed and ended up with an owie. What is worse, he could have gotten lost, eaten, injured, kidnapped, jailed or drowned.This book should be p [...]

      This was my choice for the Popsugar prompt "A book with your favorite color in the title"Children's book choice 2 out of 3 and I have to say, after all the hype surrounding what a fantastic book this is, I just didn't see it. Sure it's a cute read, but for something so beloved I expected a little more? Anyway, on to the next one!P.S. my kids weren't all that interested either so I guess it wasn't just me.

      Crockett Johnson's allegorical retelling of Books 1-6 of Vergil's Aeneid is still as powerful today as when it was originally published in 1955. After being startled by a "dragon" guarding apples - a reference to the Achaian menace brought on by the Golden Apple of Discord - Harold/Aeneas is forced into an involuntary sea voyage, accompanied only by the moon (here a stand-in for his patroness/mother Venus). He lands in a pleasant country, and enjoys a seaside feast (the wealth and luxury of Cart [...]

      This book is Amazing! I love this story of imagination & imagery! My favorite part toward the end:"And then Harold made his bed.He got in it and he drew up the covers."This is so perfect on so many levels. The sad thing is I don't remember reading this as a child - I discovered The Adventures of Harold and the Purple Crayon at age 30 - Where have you been all my life Harold? If you're like me or if you've read it before - do yourself a favor and read this book - rediscover a world of imagina [...]

      After finally having had a chance to read Crocket Johnson's Harold and the Purple Crayon (which I unfortunately never did get a chance to actually and actively encounter during my own childhood, although I had heard of its existence), and what in my humble opinion makes this timeless classic so very much and inherently, lastingly special is that with the simplicity of the accompanying illustrations, the author/illustrator shows children (no, he actually shows EVERYONE) that imagination and even [...]

      A true classic and for good reason! A marvelous story about all the places imagination (and a purple crayon) can take you! Don't let the book's apparent "simplicity" fool you--this is a treasure.I'm a creative person, but I'm not especially artistic in terms of drawing/painting/etc. so I could both appreciate Harold's creative spirit and his artistic talents that are beyond me! That said, I think even though Harold uses a purple crayon, the imagination and creativity can be so relevant to variou [...]

      Harold and his purple crayon break diegetic barriers as if it's nobody's business. Postmodern as fuck.

      I remember reading Harold and the Purple Crayon, by Crockett Johnson, as a child, so when I saw the book on the library shelves, I decided to check it out for my older daughter. When I read it to her, the feelings of disquietude that had plagued me as a child when I read the book (and which I had forgotten) were reawakened. Harold and the Purple Crayon is upsetting because it is not a journey into the imagination or even into a real yet magical world (a la Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things [...]

      Some books are classics for a reason. This is one of those books. I'd happily recommend this book for kids of any age range. They're delightful, and my boys enjoy having them read and re-read to them.

      Such a fun children's book about a child's imagination and what he can do with it, with the right tools.

      J'ai décidé lire des livres enfantines parce que j'ai besoin de pratiquer la langue française. J'ai lu le livre célèbre Le Petit Prince quand j'étais au lycée. Mais maintenant je voudrais lire des autres livres enfantines. Je prévois de lister des mots nouveaux que j'apprends à la fin de cette critique. J'ai trouvé une copie de livre, Harold et le Crayon Violet, dans le catalogue biblioteque. Je sais, ce livre est originalment traduit de l'américaine, mais je dois commencer quelque pa [...]

      Crockett Johnson's wonderful little book "Harold and the Purple Crayon" is a classic among children's literature. I have many fond memories of this book (and the other Harold books) about an adorable toddler with an active imagination and a magical crayon that allows him to bring to life anything he draws. I never had a problem with the book as a child, but my cynical (and science fiction/fantasy-addled) adult brain's re-reading uncovers the horrific implications within the story, implications t [...]

      I just love this book (even though my wife insists I never pronounce the word crayon correctly. She says I say "crown"). As an author I try to emulate what Harold does in this book. First, go looking for an adventure. Next, add some obstacles, a little humor, a moose, some pie, and some narrow escapes. Finally, when you're all done, find your way home and get some rest. If I was ever stranded on a desert island, this would be the book I'd want to have with me.

      Harold is probably the most influential character in all of literature in our family

      One of the all-time best books to foster creativity in children. A must for EVERY child's bookshelf.

      Our whole family loves Harold. Out of all of his stories, this is one of our favorites, because we just love following him along on his drawing adventure. I idea that you can create worlds just by drawing them both fascinates and horrifies my children. My 3 yr old twins already shout "Harold!" whenever they see me pull out of of his books, and my 5 yr old, often requests these. Bringing back memories from my childhood watching Romper Room, and singing "Well you know my name is Simon", always com [...]

      This was the first book I remember loving. I remember going to the school library and snatching it off the shelf happy to read about Harold creating his own world with a purple crayon.Purple was my favourite colour when I was a kid too.I wish I owned a copy of it. It brings back happy childhood memories.

      If your child doesn't love this book, you've got an engineer on your hands (not that there's anything wrong with that).

      I had to spend some time Friday checking this one out again. It has long been on my shelf, and many students have fond memories of it and read it off and on throughout their year in my room. My familiarities of this were limited, and it became clear the night before. My wife and I love to play a live trivia game with family and friends at local restaurants and spots around town, and it ends with a final multiple-part question where you must get all parts correct to win points. Well, we had a chi [...]

      This is a classic from 1955, but I'd never read it until now. I got the small board book edition but I think the regular paperback would have been better instead. Despite it being about a young toddler, the concept is fairly advanced and I don't know that really young kids would be able to follow it all that well. Harold is, as I mentioned, a small toddler - he looks like a baby still, though he can walk - and draw. He has a purple crayon, and he uses it to draw a full-on adventure on his bedroo [...]
