In 1955 Crockett Johnson published his children's book titled HAROLD AND THE PURPLE CRAYON, the story of a four-year-old who creates his own world with a purple crayon. He starts by drawing the Moon so he can take a walk in the moonlight. The book ends when Harold draws his house and his bed so he can climb into it and go to sleep. In another book in the series Harold draws a castle, then goes inside to ask the king of the castle why there is nothing growing in the castle garden. This is Harold's version of a fairy tale and is not surprisingly titled HAROLD'S FAIRY TALE published in 1956. The Harold series is another version of the Bank Street school of writing children's books without a moral, simply using a child's imagination to determine his perception of his world.
What I particulary enjoy about Harold's here and now is that he always makes sure that he draws the Moon and takes it along with him on his adventures.
