'Harry and Walter' by Kathy Stinson tells of an unusual but wonderful friendship. The cover got me to request it and I just loved it.

Harry and Walter are neighbors and best friends. They love driving their tractors and eating garden grown tomatoes and jumping in leaves. It doesn't even matter that Harry is four and three-quarters and Walter is ninety-two and a half. They are buddies and they love being together.

Until Harry discovers a 'for sale' sign on his front lawn and he is forced to move away from Walter. What can it mean for this friendship when all the things Harry loved to do with Walter just don't seem the same anymore?

This was a wonderful picture book. The illustrations by Qin Leng are fun and full of the exuberant action of a young child. The story by Kathy Stinson is heartwarming and endearing. I loved the message that friendship has no age and I loved both Harry and Walter. The book would be a good picture book for reading aloud.

I received a review copy of this ebook from Annick Press and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
