Here is my latest creation for a drawing themed storytime…. a Harold and the Purple Crayon inspired tube story!!!! This took a lot of sketching out to figure out how to best present the story. I also used an extra long tube, I’m not sure what it’s from because it’s not as long as a wrapping paper roll but definitely bigger than a standard paper towel roll. I had originally wanted to use the scanned images from the book, but having Harold on every tab and trying to match up the purple lines just made my brain hurt…..so I re-drew the story, took some liberties by omitting the picnic scene (which pains me because I do love the idea of a moose and a porcupine having a picnic together.) and voila! a Harold journey that pretty much looks like a continuous line.
