FOR FANS OF CROCKETT JOHNSON’S HAROLD AND THE PURPLE CRAYON
* full English translation *
Mine has a vivid imagination and wants to be an inventor. She is an outsider at school and often feels misunderstood. Thanks to a magical discovery she gains the ability to make her own world more beautiful with a blue pencil. She can grow long hair, for example, or wings, so that she can fly. She draws and draws, and slowly but surely the world around her turns blue: the pavement, the school playground, her books, the sky. Until the other children “catch” her imagination and start drawing too…
A book with brilliant illustrations that celebrates the power of imagination and being different. Useful for sparking conversations at home and at school about being different.
