Anti-Bullying Children's Book Goes Global, as Sami the Magic Bear Sees Translation Into 10 Languages in Effort to Tackle International Epidemic

‘SAMI THE MAGIC BEAR - No To Bullying!’, by Murielle Bourdon, pulls no punches when helping young children understand the devastating effects of bullying, as well as what they can do to become champions for change. The new series is a true global movement, with volumes available in English, French, Japanese, Italian, German, Portuguese, Polish, Spanish, Hindi, Arabic and a growing list of other languages.


Saint-Hubert, QC -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/31/2015 -- Every country has a bullying problem, to the point that it is now being identified by Governments around the world as serious societal epidemic. However, there's no catch-all international campaign to help children recognize the signs of bullying and treat it at the root cause. But that's until now…

Surprisingly, the world's newest and most powerful tool for fighting back exists in the world of literature – through a lovable bear named Sami. Sami's second volume, 'No To Bullying!', is already spreading far and wide from its native Canada, with hugely-impressive results.


SAMI, the magical teddy bear comes to the aid of children who feel alone and who are facing troubling events that occur in the course of their lives. Today, SAMI intervenes in the life of Thomas facing ridicule and bullying and offers him support and helps him to get through these difficult times.

"Most authors are happy to write a book, sell it on home soil and ignore international markets," explains Bourdon. "However, the bullying problem is too serious to ignore and, therefore, a resource like this needs to trickle into as many societies as it can."

Continuing, "To that end, we have already translated it into French, English, Spanish, Italian, German, Portuguese, Hindi, Japanese and Polish and it's just launching in both electronic and physical formats in Arabic. I challenge any author to produce a series with equal potential and reach!"
