One evening, after giving it some thought, Harold decides to go for a walk in the moonlight. He doesn't go alone, however. In his hand he carries a chunky purple crayon—and that's all he'll need to make this night amazing.

When there's no moon, Harold draws one. When he needs a path to walk on, he sketches it. From dragons to sailboats to picnics, Harold's moonlight trek takes incredible turns. But, eventually, the young adventurer gets sleepy. Can his crayon deliver him home?

This classic story is a must-read for anyone who appreciates the importance of a good daydream.
