Winner of the Waterstones Children's Book Prize Illustrated Book of the Year 2019

Vividly created by Lauren Ace and Jenny Løvlie, The Girls is a winning celebration of difference, individuality and friendship that lasts a lifetime. 

The beautifully illustrated story follows four friends from childhood into adulthood. As different as they are the same, each girl takes her individual path, whilst always staying part of the others’ lives, wherever their journey takes them. 

A huge hit with adults and children alike, The Girls is an inspiring story with a resonance that grows with each re-reading.

“Friendship is the fifth character in this beautiful story that charts the lives of four girls. This winning combination of Ace’s purposeful text and Løvlie’s charming illustrations provide a story that is brimming over with character and compassion. The overarching theme of inspiration is underpinned with a sweetness that encourages children and adults to return to and share this story again and again.” - - Florentyna Martin, Waterstones Children’s Buyer

MEDIA REVIEWS

'A simple but gorgeous picture book about four little girls who play in an apple tree and the women they grow into. Clear, direct and warm, it's a celebration of kindness and scraped knees, illustrated with charm by Jenny Lovlie.' - The Guardian
