Review:

There's nothing Harold can't create with his purple crayon--and that's just why children have loved his magical world for decades. Crockett Johnson wrote several other books about Harold after the original Harold and the Purple Crayon in 1955, each one tracing different themes--from Harold at the circus to Harold on Mars. This time the imaginative young artist takes his purple crayon on a search for a Christmas tree. He finds himself at the North Pole just in time to help Santa who is snowed in with his reindeer, his sleigh, and all the toys. Harold's purple crayon to the rescue! He draws his own solutions, solving both Santa's problem and his own. This would be a dandy Christmas gift wrapped up with a big pad of paper... and a purple crayon, of course. (Ages 3 to 6) --Marcie Bovetz

From the Back Cover:

It's Christmas Eve and Harold needs a Christmas tree. So with purple crayon in hand, he sets off to get one. Before long he finds himself at the North Pole, where a snowbound Santa Claus needs his help. It's up to the ever-resourceful Harold to draw up a plan and save Christmas!

Ever since the publication of Harold and the Purple Crayon in 1955, Crockett Johnson's crayon-wielding hero has had a devoted following. This classic character's Christmas adventure, with its clever and inventive twists, will delight fans old and new.
