John Solomon debuts kids book teaching children about free speech, countering censorship
May 2, 2023
Just the News founder and award-winning investigative journalist John Solomon unveiled a children’s book on Monday to empower parents and grandparents to teach new generations about the dangers of censorship and the essential role of free speech in the American experience.
The book, “Hidden Headlines,” done in partnership with Brave Books, showcases the Solomon family hamster, Chunk, as a newspaper editor who cannot distribute his Hamster Headlines news product because an evil koala named Karl has blocked the tubular social media system in the hamster village of Starlotte City.
An inquisitive detective dog named Seymour Clues cracks the case just in time to thwart Karl’s evil plan to flood Starlotte City and make citizens dependent on his free kayak program.
The story was inspired by Solomon’s own experiences facing cancel culture and censorship while reporting on the Russia collusion, Hunter Biden laptop and COVID-origins stories dating to 2016.
