About the book:
When four little girls meet under an apple tree they form an unshakable bond that grows and grows as they share their secrets, dreams, struggles and triumphs. This stunningly illustrated tale charts the girls' lives through their ups and downs, laughter and tears. As you turn the pages you are invited to watch their friendship flourish as the years pass by and the girls become women.
THE GIRLS is an incredibly special and powerful picture book which champions female friendship in a beautiful, poignant and unprecedented way. This book is unique as it invites readers to grow with the characters, showing the passage of time as they mature from four little girls into four strong women. Jenny Løvlie’s illustrations are fresh and charming and when paired with Lauren Ace’s warm and heartfelt words they truly bring the endearing story of these four girls to life in beautiful harmony.
This is the story of four girls, but it is also the story of womankind. Together #WeAreTheGirls
