The Girls creators Lauren Ace and Jenny Løvlie have teamed up for another gorgeous story of friendship over the years.

The front cover of The Boys

The boys had been friends for as long as they could remember and a little while before that. They were like brothers.

We are delighted that The Girls author Lauren Ace and illustrator Jenny Løvlie have teamed up for another book together - and it's just as beautiful as you would expect.

The Boys introduces us to four friends who play on a beach together. They're all different, but enjoy spending time together and form lasting bonds.

As they grow up, their friendship is tested and they go through ups and downs - but this warm story shows how we will always have a special connection to the people we love.

With utterly gorgeous illustrations and inclusive messages, The Boys really is a book to treasure - and we have five copies to give away!

To be in with a chance of winning, simply answer the question below and leave your details before the closing date of 11pm on Wednesday, 7 July. Good luck!
