    One thought on “Harold at the North Pole”

    1. Harold at the North Pole (Harold #4), Crockett Johnson pseudonym for David Johnson Leiskعنوان: هارولد در قطب شمال کتاب 4؛ نویسنده و تصویرگر: کراکت جانسون؛ مترجم: فاطمه حجوانی؛ تهران، قدیانی، 1388؛ در 64 ص، مصور، فروست: مجموعه قصه های هارولد 4؛ شابک: 9789645367235؛ موضوع: داستانهای خیال انگیز کودکان از نویسندگان قرن 20 م

    2. This isn't a bad book by any means, but it falls a little short of the other Harold books in my opinion. Not quite as charming and universally appealing as the others

    3. We've read a couple of the books in the Harold and the Purple Crayon series by Crockett Johnson. Harold is such a cute little boy and we enjoy his spontaneity and creativity.Since the original tale that began the series was selected as one of the books for the November 2012 - Classic Picture Book Characters reads at the Picture-Book Club in the Children's Books Group here at , I thought it would be fun to revisit this character for a holiday-themed read. This story depicts Harold as he helps San [...]

    4. This one didn't hold Mini-Me's attention - or mine - like the original did. It's still cute to watch Harold draw, but the story felt a little flat.

    5. Not quite as fun as the others in the series but nicely related to Christmas and the holiday season. Fun adventures for Harold with his crayon. You can do anything you can imagine!

    6. The fantastical Purple Crayon is back and more transcendent than ever. with a lot of holiday festive fun! Oh, how i love this childhood story, no matter how old I am. keep it coming!

    7. Fun. Christmassy. Classic.Story: Harold is back and this time he is drawing a winter landscape, a trip to visit Santa, and back to his home to prepare for Santa's arrival.This works as a stand alone book in addition to part of the series. Great for Christmas storytimes for all ages.

    8. Harold was legit my favorite book as a kid and it makes me so happy that there are apparently a ton of others and not I need to read them all!

    9. I loved Harold and the Purple Crayon as a child, but I didn't get the same feeling when I read this book as an adult. The illustrations are cute, but the story was okay.

    10. This book is about a little boy and his purple crayon. It is Christmas Eve and he has lots to get done before Santa comes. He starts off by making it snow. He gets carried away with this and ends up creating a blizzard. When it calms down, he figures he is at the North Pole. After a little searching for Santa's workshop, he comes to the conclusion that he might be standing on it. He worries about Santa being stuck inside so he draws a chimney. He helps Santa out and draws a sleigh and reindeer f [...]

    11. First sentence: It was Christmas Eve, and Harold had to have a Christmas tree before Santa Claus arrived. Premise/plot: It's Christmas Eve and Harold needs a Christmas tree. With his purple crayon in hand, Harold's adventure begins. He's in search of a tree, so he must draw stars and woods and SNOW. Because he was a little TOO enthusiastic about the snow, Harold finds himself at the North Pole, and, Santa is snowed in. Can Harold draw Santa out of trouble?My thoughts: This one is so cute and cha [...]

    12. As a long time fan of Harold and his adventures with his purple crayon, I was delighted to find this little treasure! With a copyright date of 1958 and a note that states that the story was originally published in an abbreviated format in GOOD HOUSEKEEPING Magazine, Johnson tells Harold's story of his quest to find the perfect tree on Christmas Eve. Of course, Harold's crayon takes him to the North Pole, where he is able to help Santa during a big blizzard.

    13. When I was little, I was kind of fascinated by the way Harold could just draw his world into existence. That rocked. I saw this book for the first time this week. The story is cute, very Christmasy, but I'm pretty sure as a child I would have said, right off the bat, "Why doesn't he just draw a Christmas tree??" at the very beginning. (Which is, I'm sure, what kids will say when I read it to them.) Still, fun for the holiday season.

    14. Crockett Johnson has captured the art of storytelling in its simplest and purest form. Harold books make you believe that anyone can be an author and illustrator. Magic can happen by simply picking up a crayon and enjoying a silly conversation with your little ones and seeing where the story takes you. What will your character do now? What would you do if you were him/her? The outcomes are endless!

    15. Simply put, in my deep heart, Harold is entirely magical. The ease with which he creates his reality is so effortless it appears entirely natural. There is no questioning that what he is doing is good, right, and proper, in every way. That very idea, building our own creation from our imagination, is the purest essence of Life. Hidden within a children's story is the key to happiness.

    16. Harold and his purple crayon help Santa with his Christmas Eve duties.I liked the humor woven into the decisions Harold makes as he's drawing the seasonal elements of this story, especially not being able to remember which order the reindeer go in and what their names are).Nice seasonal read aloud for PreK-2.

    17. Very Christmas-y, and traditional. As appropriate for his age, Harold believes in Santa. Not quite as magical as the other Harold books, but still a solid holiday read with a familiar character wielding his purple crayon.

    18. I love the Harold and the Purple Crayon books. It's amazing what things he can think up to draw. I always wished that I had a magic crayon like Harold and could draw anything I wanted and it would come to life!

    19. This was one of my favorite series of books as a young beginning reader. My imagination was a lot like Harold's I just didn't have the crayon to make things happen. If you have kids or grand-kids these are a great set of book to introduce them to the world of reading. Highly recommended.

    20. We have always enjoyed the creativity of the Harold books and this one was cute and fun as part of our Christmas advent books.

    21. A nice continuation of Harold's purple crayon adventures with a seasonal twist. By Crockett Johnson, not this ubiquitous "unknown" character!

    22. Oh my goodness--a Harold Christmas book! Cute and fun, and imaginative as always. I also couldn't help but laugh at the stray coloring our library copy has.

    23. I was unaware of this story by Crockett Johnson. It's not as good as the famous purple crayon story, and ends rather abruptly, but is still enjoyable.
