"One night, after thinking it over for some time, Harold decided to go for a walk in the moonlight." So begins this gentle story that shows just how far your imagination can take you. Armed only with an oversized purple crayon, young Harold draws himself a landscape full of beauty and excitement. But this is no hare-brained, impulsive flight of fantasy. Cherubic, round-headed Harold conducts his adventure with the utmost prudence, letting his imagination run free, but keeping his wits about him all the while. He takes the necessary purple-crayon precautions: drawing landmarks to ensure he won't get lost; sketching a boat when he finds himself in deep water; and creating a purple pie picnic when he feels the first pangs of hunger.
Crockett Johnson's understated tribute to the imagination was first published in 1955, and has been inspiring readers of all ages ever since. Harold's quiet but magical journey reminds us of the marvels the mind can create, and also gives us the wondrous sense that anything is possible. (Ages 4 to 8) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

As such, the new board book version of Harold is a major distortion of the original magical book. Pages and words are combined and illustrations completely omitted compared to the original. As a result most of the magic is lost. I urge you to buy another version than this Board Book. I bought them as gifts and had to return them. If anyone can comment on how faithful the paperback version is to the original story, I would suggest purchasing that for now. This Board Book is NOT the same magical story.
