Harold is an adventurous little boy who decides to go for a walk with his little purple crayon. While on his walk he needs something to walk on, so he draws a walk way. He then imagines up all of the different things he sees and will need to have while on this night walk. He even finds himself head to head with a dragon! This gets him into the water where he draws up a boat. He gets lost for a while and is able to draw himself out of the trouble he gets into. A the end he finds his way back home and into his bed.
