Rob and Kevin won eight Super League titles in fourteen years with Rugby League’s Leeds Rhinos. However, it is the story of their enduring friendship that has captured the heart of the nation. In 2019 Rob received a devastating diagnosis of Motor Neurone Disease and, since then, his inspiring determination to shine a spotlight on the illness and Kevin’s tireless fundraising for the MND community, has given hope to others who are suffering.
Rob Burrow said of the book: ‘Whether it’s Pooh and Piglet or Sherlock and Watson, great friendships abound in literature. True friends like Kevin are always with their friends even when times are tough. I used to love reading bedtime stories to my three children, usually multiple times because they would try and delay their bedtime! I’m delighted we’ll be working with Macmillan Children’s Books to bring the message of friendship to many.’
Meanwhile, Kevin Sinfield said: ‘I believe the connections and interactions we have with people, especially friends and family, are the most valuable things in life. To create a book based around friendship, we hope it will help many parents, not just fathers, connect with their children and provide an insight into what true friendship is. I’m thrilled to be working with Macmillan Children’s Books on this, and I hope children across the world get to experience the friendship that Rob and I share.
