The Boys

Author: Lauren AceIllustrator: Jenny Lovlie

Four boys play at the seaside. They have been friends for as long as they can remember. The boys are a team, and find different means for expression as they grow. A real strength is the focus on the emotional capacity of boys. A positive antidote against stereotypes and unquestioned conditioning.
