Barnaby Vol. 4
Volume Four collects 1948–1949; the misadventures of five-year-old Barnaby Baxter and his Fairy Godfather J.J. O’Malley continue. Bumbling but endearing, Mr. O’Malley rarely gets his magic to work ― even when he consults his Fairy Godfather’s Handy Pocket Guide. The true magic of Barnaby resides in its canny mix of fantasy and satire, amplified by the understated elegance of Crockett Johnson’s clean, spare art. It combines of Johnson’s sly wit and O’Malley’s amiable windbaggery, a child’s feeling of wonder and an adult’s wariness, highly literate jokes and a keen eye for the ridiculous.

Ellen's Lion
Originally published in 1959 and out of print for two decades, this collection of very short stories chronicles Ellen’s relationship– complete with two-way conversations–with her floppy stuffed lion. Ellen’s temperament is a bit like Christopher Robin’s (though her appearance is a clone of Harold, from Harold and the Purple Crayon fame), but her lion is a no-nonsense, tougher-minded Pooh, with the voice of reason and reality to counter Ellen’s high-flying imagination. The stories range from fear of the dark and being sad to playing doctor, being a fairy princess, and dealing with a new toy that almost replaces lion. Parents will find the subtly droll stories as entertaining as children, and a child who reads chapter books will find especially rewarding.

For over sixty years, Crockett Johnson’s beloved Harold and his purple crayon have inspired fans to believe that creativity, wonder, and imagination can transform our world. Now fans old and new can experience the magic of Harold in three creative adventures. A treasury including the full text and illustrations from the cherished Harold and the Purple Crayon, Harold’s Fairy Tale, and Harold’s ABC, this collection makes a beautiful collector’s item and gift. Harold’s Imagination also includes a fascinating afterword by Crockett Johnson and Ruth Krauss biographer Philip Nel, which features rare photos, original sketches, and interesting information about Johnson’s inspiration for Harold and his stories. It’s wonderful to think that in Crockett Johnson’s stories about Harold, he used only two colors, brown and purple; lots of white space; and remarkable simplicity to prove many times over how far imagination can take us if we allow it to.
