Harold and the purple crayon: Harold wants to take a walk in the moonlight so he draws a moon with his purple crayon. A picture for Harold's room: Harold draws a picture for his room, then becomes bigger than a mountain and smaller than a bird before finding his way home. Harold's fairy tale: with his purple crayon, Harold takes a trip through an enchanted garden where he meets a king, an invisible giant witch, and a magical fairy. The swineherd: an honorable prince disguises himself to get close to a spoiled princess. Time of wonder: beautiful watercolors and poetic text highlight the sights and sounds of nature on an island in Maine. The foolish frog: a farmer sees a bullfrog fall in the water and finds inspiration to write a song that gets the whole town singing and dancing. Drummer Hoff: the classic tale of soldiers building a magnificent cannon is told through rhyme, rhythm and stunning illustrations.
