All of these follow the adventures of Harold as he draws himself into and out of difficulties with his purple crayon.

You will also find some new Harold adventures based on the cartoons on HBO Family. They may be charming, but they are not by
Crockett Johnson.

Other books by Crockett Johnson:

You can look for all of these at your local library or independent bookstore; several of the Harold books are available in paperback. HarperCollins, their publisher, is reissuing them in a larger format with jazzed-up cover art. I prefer the originals but it's nice to see that the books remain popular.

I've always loved the Harold books, and that's only partly because my name is Harold. That's why when I was creating this web site, I chose the purple crayon theme as a tribute.
