An international book project initiated by Norwegian charity, Echo 2012 aiming at portraying children's views on friendship has been launched under the auspices of Swedish publishing group, Bombadil Publishing.

Children from 27 countries are joining together in a unique project to write and illustrate to the theme of "What does a friend do?" The book, which will be translated into 12 languages and takes an active look into the concept of friendship, promotes the idea of camaraderie and communication between people of all ages. Heads of state from the 27 participating countries have also been invited to share their views on friendship, giving a holistic approach to communication while bridging the gap between generations and cultures around the world.

The proceeds generated from book sales will be spent helping participating charity partners in their work in promoting global friendship through understanding and communication as well as on combating illiteracy. Part of the revenue will also be distributed as royalties among the contributing youth authors and artists in accordance with Bombadil Publishing's policy.

The book is estimated to sell in excess of three million copies and its preliminary release date of September 2009 will be preceded and succeeded by charity festivals, exhibitions and various friendship and knowledge enhancing activities for young people.

Material is being submitted daily and interested schools are invited to participate. Drawings not selected for the book will, as far as possible, be shown at the exhibitions and festivals.

Bombadil Publishing is a fast expanding youth-to-youth publisher with headquarters in Sweden and has been revolutionising children's approach to reading since its foundation just over a year ago by allowing them to take a leading part in the literary and commercial process of book creation. Bombadil Publishing publishes books written by young people for young people, with the aim of allowing them to share their stories, visions and dreams. Bombadil Publishing is proud to be associated with Echo 2012's efforts to spread global friendship and understanding through communication, and sees its participation in this project as a manifestation of the endeavour to promote, encourage and endorse young people's interest in books and their strive for democracy through freedom of thought.
