Harold gets super creative once he finds a purple crayon and lets his imagination take him to new worlds. I loved how mischievous and artistic Harold is. The book made me want to draw all over the walls, but my mom stopped me before I was able too. I hope the spirit of Harold leaves with me for the rest of my life. Love live Harold and his purple colored crayon.

Harold gets out of bed at night. Kate tells me that children are not supposed to do that.

Ithought this book was a good book to read to your young children. Its a fun, and adventureous story about a boy who finds this dog and plays with him. The little boy Harold has a wild imagination. It teaches young kids how to visualize and see the action going on in the story.

Harold becomes an easy reader! He wants a dog and draws a few..until he realizes that he had the right dog all along.
