Join the fun with Agrippa, Audrey, Basharat and Brielle. The Four is about the inseparable friendship of four children from different ethnic backgrounds when they are trapped inside their school building after an accident. They get to learn and respect each others’ cultures and beliefs when they visit each of their homes when they are free. The story of the children is encouraging and is set to expand into other learning curves and adventures... Enjoy Book One – Friends for Life.

George Rosling, born in Glasgow in 1960, has a wife, Lisa, and two children, Graeme and Eva. He is in the process of releasing a series of children’s books that involve children from different ethnic backgrounds. He will introduce kids at an early age to cultural awareness and religious education. In this multi-cultural society he is looking to encourage the children to teach the adults all about their friends’ religions, cultures and beliefs.


Rosling will have the children participating in various adventures that will involve each culture in tandem, and show how the children enjoy sharing their celebrations with each other as well as with their families. He is an avid believer in equality for all races and religions and wants to bring this across in this series of books for children.

    Wow.......this book is excellent in-fact it teaches children about their own cultures and beliefs. It shows an intelligent appreciation of mixed cultures starting to bond together through the eyes of our children. This is most definitively the way forward for learning in our society..

    This is the first book i have bought from this author. It is a very good story and my children have read it, they were impressed
    The characters were great and kids can relate to them easy. the drawings are great. All in all a very good book/read. I would recommend this to anyone looking forward to the next books to come along.

  • Jamie Hannan-Carter

    I was impressed by the way that the author captured the idea to amalgamate different cultures together. The children are enjoying learning about each others religions and habits and will also learn so much about other cultures and beliefs. The idea that they then become friends for life adds another star as far as im concerned - im impressed.......well done George Rosling

  • Jessica Rowlands

    Im not quite sure where to start to be honest. The only thing I can say is that I feel that this concept of bringing different cultures together has been a long time coming. I think this will go down particularly well in primary schools where children can grasp cultural awareness and religious education from alternative persceptives. Good luck to the author on his journey with this book and I hope it brings him success.

  • Lisa Gregory

    Started to read 'Friends for Life' and found it an interesting read. The characters were believable and the story captured your attention from the beginning of the book. I look forward to glimpsing through any more books in this series as im sure they will be educational and interesting..

    I bought this book for my children. It’s wonderfully diverse and informative. It’s relevant for today’s children’s reading and it’s interesting and bright. My children love it and so does my class of reception children. Can’t wait for the next one.
