Herman the bear and Henry the raccoon are best friends. But Henry's moving far, far away! So what do they do? Promise to write each other all the time and stay best friends forever, that's what.

But being pen-pals is easier said than done, especially when your best friend seems to be having way more fun than you are. . . .

Filled with interactive lift-the-flaps and great read-aloud potential, this heartwarming friendship story is an ideal pick for a cold night's story-time.

Tom Percival writes and illustrates picture books in his native United Kingdom. He lives in a town called Stroud with his family. tom-percival.com@TomPercivalSays

Editorial Reviews

"Hibernation, dedication and one long-distance friendship that will never be forgotten: a must-have when a friend moves away." -Kirkus Reviews"Filled with amusing details, the dynamic artwork fuels the text with action and humor, and lift-the-flap letters add an appealing interactive element. This book proves that true friendship endures despite distance and duress." -School Library Journal"Percival uses lift-the-flap letters to give concrete reality to the friends' correspondence, and his portrayal of Herman's vulnerability is touching and funny." -Publishers Weekly"The story's emotional content will resonate with any child whose friend has moved away, and the cartoonlike journey sequence is entertaining on its own. Colorful and expressive, Percival's illustrations have plenty of kid appeal. . . . offbeat, gently amusing fantasy." -Booklist
