Madeleine arrived to Sweden yesterday.

- The princess has landed in Sweden. She came yesterday, says Margareta Thorgren.
Now Madeleine is charging for her first major assignment and already tomorrow it is time. Then she comes to Junibacken in Djurgården shortly after 15.00 to show her heart project, the children's book Stella och hemligheten for the first time.
- It will be a super exciting afternoon and we look so much forward to the book finally coming out, says Åsa Andreasson at Childhood.
- The princess will sit on the stage and tell, and there will be many children in place. There will be a lot of play and buses!
Does she have her own children with her tomorrow?
- No, it's Princess Madeleine coming from the family. After all, she is there as a writer, says Margareta Thorgren.
And Childhood's Åsa Andreasson says:
- This is a project that Princess Madeleine has dreamed for a long time. And as she has been carrying within a long time. She wanted to talk to children directly about these issues, not through adults. It is something that has grown up, and I think it is something that has become even stronger since she herself had children.
The Junibacken will be open as usual, and the princess's book launch will take place in a separate part.
But even if we can't meet Leonore, Nicolas and Adrienne, there will be many children (and many parents) in place anyway. Among other things, we will see several of Princess Madeleine's girlfriends .

Given that she had 2 co-authors (and an illustrator of course); I wonder what exactly Madeleine's contribution was: did she come up with the story line or just with the idea or did she sit down and write parts of the book or did she do the final editing?

A quick google search suggests that Marie Oskarsson most likely WROTE most of the book as the other co-author Karini Gustafson-Teixeira is also working for World Childhood - credited as 'Co-Founder of
ThankYou by Childhood' -the other one being Madeleine; it seems that Thank You is their awards and gala event- on the USA-website (that states Madeleine's name and title as 'HRH princess Madeleine Bernadotte of Sweden').

Yes, and the idea is very similar to the book which Victoria and Daniel's Generation Pep published with Bonnier Carlsen (the same publisher than at Madeleine's book). To publish a children's book for children, with some serious material in it. Generation Pep sent a press release in January 2017 that they and Bonnier Carlsen publish children's book "Sagasagor: Fiffiga kroppen och finurliga knoppen" (Saga Tales: Nifty bodies and shrewd heads) written by author Josefine Sundström. A book with the goal of awakening the children's desire for physical activity. It was published in May 2017. The differences are that Josefine Sundström had already published Sagasagor-books previously and wrote the serie's new book for Generation Pep alone. And Generation Pep's book is divided into two parts. The first is a story about Saga and the other encourages children and parents to activate themselves along with many tips on movements and games.

Daniel Sjölin's review about Madeleine's book
When it comes to "Stella och hemligheten", one must first sort out who made it. We know the illustrator: She is called Stina Lövkvist and keeps away from the press material, there is not even a picture of her on the publisher's website. Then the question is who wrote. Is it A: Author Marie Oskarsson, who has a long and solid authorship with books about Buster, Hanna, Hedda and Uma and fact books for adults and children. Or B: Karini Gustafson-Teixeira, buddy with the princess and initiator of the World Childhood Foundation's #EyesWideOpen campaign, which goal is to raise awareness of the children who fall victim to trafficking and sexual exploitation each year. Or C: Madeleine Thérèse Amelie Josephine Bernadotte, duchess of Hälsingland and Gästrikland. Or D: A team of publishers and child psychologists.
"The adult reader realizes the perhaps most disgusting thing a small child can suffer."
"A young reader may simply not understand what is happening."

Madeleine and Karini Gustafson-Teixeira have designed "Stella Moonstone Bracelet" together with Charlotte Ramel, the designer and founder of Ebba Brahe Jewellery.
The bracelet was on sale at the courtyard of the Royal Palace on National Day when Madeleine signed the book, and will be out at webshop and in stores soon to benefit World Childhood Foundation.

Madeleine visited yesterday Maskrosbarn, a children's rights organization.

World Childhood Foundation has cooperated with Maskrosbarn since 2010. WCF was the first big financier of Maskrosbarn and gave the child rights organization the opportunity to establish itself and build up the activities that exist today.

The Karl Kübel Foundation, which promotes children and parents around the world in order to give them a fair chance for education and a life of dignity and freedom, awards the prize on 6 September 2019 in Bensheim.
The day of the award ceremony is also the 110th birthday of the founder Karl Kübel (1909-2006). Like Queen Silvia, it was close to his heart today that children can grow up well protected, far from neglect and violence. "We are very pleased that Her Majesty can accept the award on this special day for us", says Daniela Kobelt Neuhaus from the board of the Karl Kübel Foundation.
"Her Majesty Queen Silvia of Sweden has been working for children worldwide for many years in an extraordinary way. With her World Childhood Foundation, she is fighting against the exploitation and neglect of children, against mistreatment and abuse as well as for better living conditions for girls and boys", says Kobelt Neuhaus, explaining the Foundation's decision. "This perfectly complements the work of our foundation. Many of our projects in developing countries are working against the exploitation, violence and abuse of children to give them a better future. In Germany too, we work preventively in this area by offering low-threshold offers for familiesdevelop and implement them with cooperation partners. For example, in the area of ​​early aid, the foundation is involved in the qualification of family midwives who advise parents and anticipate and reduce potential risks. "
With her foundation, founded in 1999, Queen Silvia is also committed to preventive measures and educating society in order to reduce the abuse and exploitation of children. Childhood is committed to empowering vulnerable children to become self-confident and responsible individuals through abuse.
"I am very happy about the award. The Karl Kübel Prize is a nice recognition for all employees of my foundation. The tribute emphasizes the importance of advocating for children who have experienced violence and abuse and persistently struggling to help these children", says Queen Silvia.
