A beautiful tale of female friendship, The Girls is a tale that follows four young girls as they grow into women. Written by Lauren Ace and Illustrated by Jenny Lovlie, this is a brilliant debut book for readers aged 3+ to 5+ and their parents. 

The story begins as four girls meet under an apple tree and form a bond that will last a lifetime. Throughout their lives all of the girls go through their own ups and downs, sharing secrets, dreams and fears with each other. This perfect book shows the friendships as they flourish and the girls grow up.
