Harold and the big purple crayon
That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, Vol. 1 by FuseAs players of Monster Hunter and Dungeons & Dragons know, the slime is not exactly the king of the fantasy monsters. So when a 37-year-old Tokyo salaryman dies and wakes up in a world of dragons and magic, he’s a little disappointed to find he’s become a blind, boneless slime monster. Mikami’s middle age hasn’t gone as he planned: He never found a girlfriend, he got stuck in a dead-end job, and he was abruptly stabbed to death in the street at 37. So when he wakes up in a new world straight out of a fantasy RPG, he’s disappointed but not exactly surprised to find that he’s not a knight or a wizard but a blind slime demon. But there are chances for even a slime to become a hero…

This book, beloved of myself from the moment I was given it aged four and much loved by my children, is relatively unknown in the UK, and undeservedly so. On a superficial level it is a lovely simple picture book with bold line-drawings that jump off the page, telling the reader about a sweet baby hero and the adventures he gets into. On the other hand, Harold And His Big Purple Crayon serves as metaphor for childhood and for growing up, dealing as it does with so many childhood challenges and fears.

Round 2 of the Preschool Book Club was the perfect opportunity! One of my favorite aspects of the book is how Johnson makes the reader feel like you are jumping right into the each scene with the boy and his purple crayon. Come jump in with us! Begin by taping large pieces of white butcher paper to the wall. I made mine about 8 feet long and used two pieces to make the mural approximately 5 feet high. I used these objects as a drawing prompt on our mural. Do WE get to draw on it?
Harold took a walk in the moonlight. He drew a straight path to walk on. Harold walked with his big purple crayon. Then, he took a shortcut across a field. He entered a forest.

WHAT YOU NEED TO CREATE A GIANT HAROLD AND THE PURPLE CRAYON MURAL
Harold never makes it home. This haunting realization first hit me one evening, after my son and I had endured a fourth consecutive rendition of Harold and the Purple Crayon. I mulled it over, shifting as my son wiggled off my lap. My parents read it to me; their parents read it to them. How did we never notice? Allow me to explain. Frantic, he draws a police officer who gives predictably bad directions.
Harold and the Purple Crayon is a children's book by Crockett Johnson. This is Johnson's most popular book. It led to a series of other books, and inspired many adaptations. The protagonist, Harold, is a curious four-year-old  boy who, with his purple crayon , has the power to create a world of his own simply by drawing it. Harold wants to go for a walk in the moonlight, but there is no moon, so he draws one. He has nowhere to walk, so he draws a path. He has many adventures looking for his room, and in the end he draws his own house and bed and goes to sleep.
The story follows Harold as he wanders around drawing his own reality with his purple crayon and trying to get home. Harold is colored in with a blue jumpsuit and Caucasian skin. Everything else in the story is purple, since it was drawn with the crayon ; this lets the reader see that Harold is somehow more real than everything else. It has received several sequels, and also been adapted into a series of children's animated shorts, as well as an animated series on HBO produced by Sony Pictures Television. The series is completely available on DVD, so no need to hunt hard for it. A film was in the works , with Sony returning from the series albeit moving from Adelaide Productions to Sony Pictures Animation and co-producing with Will Smith 's Overbrook Entertainment unit. No, really.
