SS1- Chosen adaptation

Having researched on some of the best sellers list of Children's books, the one that appealed to me most was Crockett Johnson's 'Harold and the Purple Crayon'. This concept particularly would allow me to playfully manipulate some of the elements in the story and interpret it with my own set of motifs that convey a certain underlying message. The story also gives me the opportunity to experiment the use of certain narrative devices that I have particularly learned from 'Paul Wells' reading material.


The video below is the 'literal' word to word 1959 animated adaptation of the actual book, directed by David Piel.
