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 four boys as they grow up, forming bonds of friendship to last a lifetime - even if they are occasionally put to the test...
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, Lovlie's characters glow, while her detailed, textured depictions of the seashore feel really alive." - Observer
"Utterly charming... luminously illustrated..." - Attitude
