School Library Journal - 05/01/2016 PreS-Gr 1—Harry and Walter live next door to each other and are best buds. They play croquet, garden tomatoes, jump in autumn leaves, and make paper airplanes. The only unusual aspect of their friendship is that Harry is four and Walter is 92. When Harry has to move away, he is heartbroken and lonely in his new house without his pal. Luckily, two years later Walter moves into an apartment building up the street and the pair resume their friendship. Leng's airy cartoony illustrations are slightly reminiscent of James Stevenson's, their dynamic black outlines deftly capturing the gamut of emotions of the duo's bond. - Copyright 2016 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
