Its Christmas Eve and Harold needs a Christmas tree. So, with purple crayon in hand, he sets off to find one. Before long, Harold arrives at the North Pole, where a snowbound (and very purple) Santa Claus needs his help to save Christmas! Harolds Christmas adventure is as fresh and funny today as when it was first published in 1957. Now back in print after forty years, Harold at the North Pole will delight fans old and new. In celebration of the re-release of Harold at the North Pole, all five ingenious and endearing picture books about the purple-crayon-wielding Harold are being reissued. A bold and bigger trim size along with bright and engaging treatments of the original cover art bring these treasured books to new generations of Harold fans!
