About the Author:

Crockett Johnson was born in New York and spent his childhood on Long Island. He acquired his art education at New York University and at Cooper Union.

For many years the author and illustrator of the popular comic strip Barnaby, Mr. Johnson also illustrated many wonderful children's books, including Ruth Krauss's The Carrot Seed. He is perhaps best remembered for his own slyly engaging books about a small boy named Harold and his journeys with a purple crayon.

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.
