The combination of a child's imagination and a purple crayon can result in some remarkable adventures. Beginning with a walk in the moonlight on a long straight path so he won't get lost, Harold's adventures include an encounter with a frightening dragon who jealously guards an apple tree, a nighttime sail on the ocean, a picnic on the beach, a float in an air balloon, and an anxious search for his own familiar window.

Today's reader may also enjoy Journey, which won a 2014 Caldecott Honor mention as it takes this concept to another level...

I liked that Harold was drawing everything. My favorite part was when he drew the dragon behind the apple tree.
