The Boys

Available

Description

The boys had been friends for as long as they could remember and a little while before that. They were like brothers.


Follow the adventures of Tam, Rey, Nattie and Bobby - four boys who share a friendship that will last a lifetime.

From playing on the beach as babies to navigating the journey from childhood to adulthood, this beautifully illustrated picture book explores the importance of male friendships. Emotive storytelling by Lauren Ace gently presents themes of individuality, grief, togetherness and feelings, while Jennie Lovlie's stylish artwork delicately presents the difficulties and triumphs of growing up.

This is the perfect book for young readers who are facing big changes, and opens up discussions about school-life and the future.

From the creators of the Waterstones Children's Book Prize winner, The Girls.
