Description


A gorgeous hardcover treasury of three favorite Harold and the Purple Crayon books, Harold's Imagination is perfect for sharing at bedtime or in the classroom. The complete text and art from all three books is beautifully presented in this large-format treasury.

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.

Now fans old and new can experience the magic of Harold in three creative adventures. A treasury including the full text and illustrations from the cherished Harold and the Purple Crayon, Harold’s Fairy Tale, and Harold’s ABC, this collection makes a beautiful collector’s item and gift.

Harold’s Imagination also includes a fascinating afterword by Crockett Johnson and Ruth Krauss biographer Philip Nel, which features rare photos, original sketches, and interesting information about Johnson’s inspiration for Harold and his stories.

It’s wonderful to think that in Crockett Johnson’s stories about Harold, he used only two colors, brown and purple; lots of white space; and remarkable simplicity to prove many times over how far imagination can take us if we allow it to.
