Touring Book Club: The Girls #TouringPictureBook

Welcome back to the Touring Book Club! This month we have a very special picture book to share with you,  The Girls written by Lauren Ace, illustrated by Jenny Lovlie and published by Caterpillar Books. If this is your first visit, the Touring Book Club is a monthly collaboration between four UK based book bloggers, where we take a look at the same picture book and share our own ideas for going beyond the story.
