CEO and founder of Enough Abuse

"As a former teacher I'm incredibly impressed with this thought provoking and clever little book. The poems are amusing and supported by wonderful illustrations that appeal to children. Each contains a number of important messages about e-safety and my personal favourite is: A Girl Called Heather.

The digital world is here to stay and young children must be aware of its darker side. Beneath the Screen brings them to a place where this can be comfortably discussed and they can become good digital citizens."
