Harold's Imagination: 3 Adventures with the Purple Crayon
Author: Crockett Johnson
Illustrator: Crockett Johnson
Harold’s Imagination is a handsome treasury that will include three of Crockett Johnson’s classic Harold stories: Harold and the Purple Crayon, Harold’s Fairy Tale, and Harold’s ABC. The afterword by noted children’s literature expert Philip Nel will include an overview of Crockett Johnson, photographs, and the origin story of Harold.
Imagination is the theme that ties together the three stories in our new Harold collection. For over sixty years, Crockett Johnson’s beloved Harold and his purple crayon have inspired fans to believe that creativity, wonder, and imagination can transform our world.
This jacketed hardcover treasury has a larger trim than the original Harold books, making it perfect for sharing at bedtime or in the classroom. It makes a beautiful collector’s item and gift. The fascinating afterword by Crockett Johnson’s and Ruth Krauss’s biographer, Philip Nel, will feature rare photos, original sketches, and information about Johnson’s inspiration for Harold and his stories.
