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.

“Gentle, tender and joyful…” – Guardian

“…a nostalgic story with a refreshingly modern feel.” Daily Telegraph

“The book is at pains to show non-stereotypical images of boys and men… and manages to be not only insightful but affecting.” Financial Times

“With echoes of Helen Oxenbury’s illustration style, Løvlie’s characters glow, while her detailed, textured depictions of the seashore feel really alive.” Observer

“Utterly charming… luminously illustrated…” Attitude
