KIRKUS REVIEW

Terribly timid Harold, who has survived breathtaking adventures with the help of his own imagination and props he draws with a purple crayon, ventures into outer space this time. After deciding to reach the moon and back before breakfast, Harold draws a rocket for himself, boards it, fires it and tiptoes up to the man from Mars who occupies a flying saucer. Crockett Johnson's intrepid little hero scampers for his life after drawing a crack in the flying saucer and arrives home in time for his oatmeal. Deliciously silly, this very tiny book, done in the Barnaby style, bridges the gap between comic books and serious reading, for the illustrations are integral to the text.
