Eight children from a modern housing estate show in a highly infectious way (and one well worth copying) that you don’t necessarily have to grow up in Noisy Village to have a happy childhood. “When you move into a terraced house, the neighbours automatically come with it,” Tara’s Dad told her when they moved to Gull Street. And Tara’s Mum said, “Please God, let us be lucky.” God must have heard her because there’s nowhere in the world as nice as Gull Street. the best thing about Gull Street is that there are so many children there. There’s always something they can do together here: play mud desert, go hunting for criminals, have a picnic or spend the night in a tent – and form a gang, obviously. Laurin, Vincent and Petja are really stupid sometimes, but what else can you expect from boys? The main thing is that the girls are nice. And they are. One of them, Tieneke, is even Tara’s best friend. Small wonder, then, that Tara wouldn’t want to live anywhere else in the world than in Gull Street.
