Bear and Rat have been best friends for forever, but Rat has been wondering: will they always be best friends? She asks Bear if he will continue to be there for her, to hold her hand, through lots of different difficult times. Will he be there when they are old and wrinkled? Or when Rat injures herself, or becomes quite ill? Or what about if she does something really bad?
To each question, Bear responds that of course he’ll still be there to hold Rat’s hand, no matter what! Finally, Rat asks her friend what he would do if she had to go far away, to a place he could not follow?
Bear thinks for a moment, before reassuring his best friend that, no matter what or where or how, they would always be best friends, and would hold each other close in their minds and hearts.
This is an absolutely beautiful story about love and friendship. The soft watercolour illustrations show all the adventures that Bear and Rat go on together, holding hands the whole way. The sweet friendship between Bear and Rat is heartwarming.
