Will We Always Hold Hands?

By Christopher Cheng Illustrated by Stephen Michael King

A universal story about the everlasting bonds of friendship and love, from two award-winning creators.

There are some things that only a best friend can do—hold your hand when reading a scary story, carry you safely across a river, bandage your hurts, say it’s okay if you're grouchy, and best of all, forever hold you in their heart.

Through a series of questions and answers, Bear tells his friend Rat that best friends will always be together, in rain or shine, in good times and bad, forever and ever.
