Harold is a very curious four-year-old. With his purple crayon, Harold has the power to create a world uniquely his own. Harold wants to go for a walk in the moonlight, but there is no moon. No problem. Harold draws one. Harold has nowhere to walk, so he draws a path. HOWEVER, Harold conducts his adventure with intelligence. He lets his imagination run free, but he keeps his wits about him. Harold takes the necessary precautions to survive.

Harold’s crayon leads readers on a journey of freedom and imagination.
