Harold is an energetic young boy with a vivid imagination who enjoys drawing. One night, he embarks on an adventurous moonlight walk drawing a moon and path as he goes.

It’s a great way to foster belief in themselves as well as using creativity effectively!

This book not only emphasizes the importance of believing in yourself but is a delightful tale about friendship. Harold uses his vivid imagination to make new friends; even going so far as imagining himself as a dinosaur until his friend Moose convinces him not to.

Eventually, two friends embark on an incredible adventure together and realize they can achieve anything if they put their minds to it. While the ending may be saddening for readers, this book reminds readers not to be afraid of dreaming and trying new things.

The book was transformed into an animated TV series airing on HBO Family in 2001, narrated by Sharon Stone and based on original books written by Crockett Johnson. The show proved very popular, drawing both children and adults. Since then, a live stage play adaptation starring Zachary Levi, Zooey Deschanel, Ravi Patel, and Lil Rel Howery has also been performed across the country with great success – this adaptation will soon be hitting movie theaters this summer!
