Happy Birthday, Harold!

Harold Purple Crayon

WORZALLA joins Harpercollins Publishers and many iconic children’s book characters and their illustrators as they celebrate the 60th anniversary of the beloved children’s book, Harold and the Purple Crayon. To honor the occasion we have a display in our lobby showcasing the 60th Anniversary Edition as well as several other Harold titles manufactured at WORZALLA.

Harold and the Purple Crayon was written and illustrated by Crockett Johnson, and published by Harper in 1955. WORZALLA has been manufacturing Harold and the Purple Crayon at least as far back as 1995. We have also had the honor of manufacturing several other titles starring this amazing little artist and his magical crayon worlds.

Follow this link to the Harper site to see Harold’s birthday tributes from Fancy Nancy, Pete the Cat, Lilly (who loves purple), Biscuit, and many more beloved characters — http://www.harpercollins.com/childrens/harold. You can join in on the festivities by illustrating your own birthday greeting.
