Goldilocks (A Hashtag Cautionary Tale)

By Jeanne Willis
Illustrated by Tony Ross

Goldilocks must face the repercussions when her vlogging goes too far... A hilarious cautionary tale for a new generation of internet-users, following Chicken Clicking and Troll Stinks.

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, the third of its kind following Chicken Clicking and Troll Stinks.

  • Published to coincide with Safer Internet Day 2019.
  • Selected for a partnership with Vodafone Digital Parenting in 2019, including a limited edition small-format hardback with Vodafone cover, a website resource dedicated to online safety for children, and a strong marketing and publicity campaign.
  • This is the third in a series of cautionary tales for the new generation of young internet-users, following Chicken Clicking and Troll Stinks.
