Fat Gourg on YouTube

Following on from Saturday’s newspaper story about Fat Gourg, the 7-year-old’s monster who become an internet craze in France, the story hit the local TV yesterday – and the French fans have already put it up on Youtube.

If they had shown the interview they did with me I would have been saying how wonderful it is to have a story that shows the positive side of the Internet.

All writing that is submitted to Kids on the Net is fully moderated and published so safely that it took 5 years, a newspaper, a TV station and thousands of French fans to find Luke.

It’s wonderful that they were able to find Luke and interview him! Meanwhile, the current crop of children at his old school, Oakthorpe Primary, have submitted their own monsters who reside on the Monster Motel website in Fat Gourg’s Friends annex.
