Harry and Walter by Kathy Stinson

Harry and Walter by Kathy Stinson is about two unlikely friends, one 4 and three-quarters years old and the other ninety-two and a half. I loved how this was a story about how friendships evolve and change. I love how the two friends, although very different in age, found things they liked to do together. I was afraid when I first started that Walter’s age meant that this would have changed involving his death, but it did not! It had Walter moving (against his will!). I like how Walter, despite the fact that he feels too old to rake leaves in the end, still had some ideas of how the two could have fun in the fall leaves. Although there was an element of sadness to the story (simply because things do change), I felt so warm inside as I thought about these two unlikely friends!

Note: I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher for review consideration. Review originally published February 2016.
