Everyone loves Goldilocks’ hilarious online videos, but in her quest to get more likes, more laughs and more hits, she tries something a little more daring: stealing porridge #pipinghot, breaking chairs #fun, and using someone else’s bed #sleep. What will Daddy Bear do when he sees that online? A hilarious cautionary tale for a new generation of internet-users from the prize-winning partnership of Jeanne Willis and Tony Ross.
Brilliant for teaching a new generation of Internet users about staying safe online.
In this delightfully optimistic and feel-good book, Fox and Porcupine discover that blue skies or grey, EVERYTHING is better when they’re together. Beautifully illustrated with a loose line, delicate touch and lashings of charm, this is the perfect gift to make someone special very happy.
