Best. Friends. Forever.

Harry may be four and three-quarters and Walter may be ninety-two and a half, but that doesn’t stop them from being best friends. Harry loves to go next door to play games with Walter and draw pictures together. And when the snow falls, Walter clears a path to Harry’s house so that they can visit every day.

But one day, a For Sale sign appears on Harry’s lawn. Harry is devastated that he and Walter will no longer be neighbors. Harry’s new house is bigger and better than his old one, but without Walter to share things with, nothing seems to be much fun . . . until one day, Harry hears a familiar voice. Walter, too, has moved—to a nearby seniors’ residence. Now, Harry and Walter can still be best friends.

Acclaimed author Kathy Stinson has created a poignant, cross-generational story that will warm the hearts of children and adults alike. With charming illustrations by Qin Leng, Harry and Walter is a perfect book for children to share with grandparents.

“[A] quiet tour de force that takes the reader by surprise.”
Quill & Quire, *starred review, 04/16

“A sweet and tender story that shows age difference is no detriment to true friendship. A good choice to share with a small group or for one-on-one enjoyment.”
School Library Journal

“Leng’s playful, expressive watercolor illustrations complement this warm story of an enduring intergenerational friendship.”
International Reading Association

“A delightful read-aloud, and, as children go through the inevitable changes in their young lives, it will be a good one to return to often to reaffirm its messages.”
CM Reviews

“Gives all ages a sense of joyful anticipation about growing older and tremendous insights into the benefits of intergenerational friendships.”
A is for Aging, B is for Books
