Children's Book Review

The book is a heartwarming story about two friends Tim and Peter who grow up together in a small town. The story begins with both the children going to the cinema for the first time with Tim's uncle. The book delves into the psyche of two six year olds who grow up together in the small sleepy town of Haldon.

The children learn the values of life through simple everyday interactions and the book teaches children the importance of love, honesty and integrity without being too preachy. It will surely bring back sweet memories to the adult readers, while the children would appreciate the simple language and the easy manner in which the story moves forward. The adults would love to read the book aloud to their young ones.
