A must-read! An enthralling tale of a young boy and his purple crayon going on adventures in a blank canvas universe :)

Lovely story about the world created by a young boy with his purple crayon. It feels a little longer than it should be, but is otherwise a fun read. My two year old demanded a reread as soon as we finished. (He has quite a long attention span for books given his age. I wouldn't choose this book for a child with a short attention span.)

If you haven’t read this classic yet, do it! A testament to the power of imagination and the enjoyment of both a good adventure, and the end of an adventure when you get home to your own bed. The book also includes pie, which is always a plus for me.

I had forgotten how much I loved Harold as a child. This is one of those perfect picture books that lends itself to art projects, imaginative play, and vocabulary-building talk with preschoolers. Highly recommended.

This is a great classic book.

I liked the purple crayon the best and when he drew the moon.

Imaginative and fun. All of a sudden my son too was also drawing loads of purple drawings...

I asked my 6 year old daughter if she liked this book and all she said was "THERE WAS A LOT OF PURPLE IN THAT BOOK" From her tone I think she found it boring. But I thought it was CUTE and imaginative. Maybe this book would best suit pre-schoolers.

My favourite book from when I was little - a lovely story that unfolds in a way that makes sense to little kids even today.
