Hold Hands

(2) PS Animals and other characters, rendered in Varon's singular offbeat style (e.g., Odd Duck), show readers how hand-holding can provide comfort throughout the day. Varon's creatures hold hands, but we also see toy robots, as well as children and their plush toys, hand in hand; "You can even hold hands with a tree instead." Every pair of hands held is at the center of radiating white lines emphasizing the emotional bond.
