Prof. Picturebook and Dr. Scarpuppy review "Harold and the Purple Crayon"

Written and Illustrated by Crockett Johnson.

Prof. Picturebook says: 

What's not to love about this classic adventure about a boy, a crayon, and a journey through one's imagination? Many picture books since "Harold" have toyed with the same premise, but no one does it better than the original.

Dr. Scarpuppy says: 

A young boy wields infinite power and all he does is feed a starving moose and a lazy porcupine? 

"Harold and the Purple Crayon" is a disappointing tale of omnipotence wasted!
