Do you know what Harold did with a purple crayon?
It was not an ordinary crayon – it was a magic crayon. Because, he drew a town with that purple crayon but it was full of windows all over.
Harold is the only one character in this story.
This is a kiddish and ‘not so good and not so bad’ story.
I like the climax because it is so good. You need to read this book at least once.
“These are magic,” he said. “Bake 1 seed in the oven until it is red and then eat it. You will not be hungry again for a whole year. Bury the other seed in the ground now and care for it well”

How Jack got 2 golden seeds?
I read this story “How a rich man feel when he saw gold rain?”. This story is not so bad or not so good.
The old man and the Jack are the two characters in this.
One boy called Jack, got two large golden seeds, from a wicked old man as a gift. The old man taught Jack how to get benefit out of them.
Read this story book to enjoy this story completely.
I just read this story book. I was so thrilled as if I saw the Bomb itself.

This is a thriller novella. A man called Rob came to defuse the bomb. When another man Tom went to defuse it in the railway station, which is left by some criminals, he cut the wrong wire and he died on the spot.
Rob was from an Army. He had lot of experience to defuse the bomb. He hid himself in a ACE cleaner’s dress. The chapter ‘60 seconds left‘ was so thrilling.
