Luke Walker is an eight year old boy with a mind of his own. He’s noticed that life often isn’t fair for non-human animals; and that what adults tell him sometimes doesn’t make sense. Wanting to right wrongs, he becomes a vegetarian outlaw who will not play by the rules if the rules mean being unkind. He knows that, in order to do the right thing, he sometimes needs to be sneaky.

These first eight chapters of Luke Walker’s adventures sticking up for animals are funny, inspiring, and very entertaining. Great mischief, great adventures, great fun!

A constant trial to his parents and teachers, Luke Walker is a vegan Just William for the twenty first century.

Grandpa Wollemi’s Birthday

Grandpa Wollemi’s Birthday is Edward Benn’s latest title and it doesn’t disappoint.  Beautifully illustrated in naïve style by Cynthia Barnett, this adorable story is about a child wanting to make something for Grandpa’s birthday.

Everyone is excited because it’s Grandpa Wollemi’s birthday.  Kauri has made him a present and Myrtle has made him a present, but Cedro just can’t think what to give him.  That is, until he remembers that Grandpa has a sweet tooth and decides to make him a birthday cake, all by himself. The simple egg-free recipe and how-to is described in the story so that readers will know how to make one themselves (with adult supervision of course🙂 ).

Absolutely delicious!

Reflecto Girl’s Lost Notebook

vegan notebook

Reflecto Girl’s Lost Notebook

Reflecto Girl, on the way to meet her future sidekick and tell him her whole story, left her notebook on the bus. She was very worried because in it she had written all about her life that year and how she’d become Reflecto Girl and things she’d done with the Dounto.  She was very concerned that this information, which was supposed to be kept secret, would fall into the wrong hands. Her friend made her feel better by telling her that as long as her real name and address were not in the book – which they weren’t, she’d made sure of that – losing it wouldn’t do any harm.

Keeping her real identity secret was the most important thing so of course she couldn’t claim the notebook from the bus depot lost property.  And that means that it’s out there, waiting for someone else to find it.

So, if you would love to learn about the girl behind Reflecto Girl; if you would to love know what her life was like before the Dounto, and where her Grandma went; if you would like to try out a couple of recipes that she made a note of; and if you love to keep a diary and would like to fill in the rest of Reflecto Girl’s book with your own notes and doodles (it’s half empty) then why don’t you pick it up?  It’s right here😀

Luke Walker: animal stick up for-er: MY PRIVUT NOTEBOOK

Luke’s notebook is for his eyes, and those of fellow vegetarian outlaws, only.  He made it out of an old maths exercise book he never used, for the purpose of privately recording the activities of his Secret Society.  Luke has written quite a lot already about things he’s said and done but there is still plenty of blank space to be filled in by other members.  All young vegetarians would do well to join Luke’s band of outlaws and get a copy of this notebook.  Instructions for how to make a code maker is included so that top secret information can be kept TOP SECRET.

Wild Goose Chase

vegan juvenile non fiction

Wild Goose Chase

The author of rhyming story book What’s Good For The Goose Is Not Good For The Panda has turned her hand to non-fiction this time, for older readers:   Wild Goose Chase – another unique title from collage artist Lavender Laine.

Wild Goose Chase is a collage of excerpts from the brilliant Sacred Cows and Golden Geese by Ray Greek MD and Jean Swingle Greek DVM.  Laine has torn pertinent sentences and paragraphs from their meticulously researched and referenced book and collaged them onto found images from many different books and magazines.  The result is a short book full of historical and scientific facts, made easier to remember by the images to which they are pasted; a book which demonstrates the futility of animal experiments and explains the corrupt, unscientific reasons for its continuation in spite of superior human-based research alternatives.

Every student should know these facts.  And every reader who wants more detailed information can find it with ease by referring to the relevant pages in Sacred Cows and Golden Geese indicated on the torn-out excerpts.

Wild Goose Chase contains no disturbing images or descriptions.  It is colourful, eye-catching, engrossing, honest, informative and designed to be memorable.

Maddicts

vegan graphic novel

Maddicts is a dark satire, set a little in the future.  In 2027 the world is looking pretty bleak. Factory farming has escalated beyond even today’s levels and the Government is planning to build bigger, more hideous animal breeding and slaughtering facilities on greenbelt land.  At the same time human dementia has reached epidemic proportions and very few have made the connection between that and meat addiction.  In this world of non joined-up thinking, only a few individuals are aware of the looming crisis.  Professor Miriam Goode attempts to warn the public but no one is listening.

The story unfolds day by day, in a darkly-comic documentary style, revealing what happens when billions of abused and brutalised animals the world over act simultaneously to escape their bonds and make a break for freedom.

There’s no swearing or disturbing images or anything like that, but it’s not really suitable for under 12s.  You can read it here first if you like🙂

What’s Good For The Goose Is Not Good For The Panda

children's rhyming story

What’s good for the goose is not good for the panda

Patty Panda is hungry but doesn’t know what to eat.  All the people she meets are happy to share their food but Patty has something very important to learn before she can indulge. This delightful rhyming story, written and illustrated completely in collage by Lavender Laine, teaches children that we are all different and what’s good for one is not necessarily good for someone else.

It might also inspire children to make art out of old odds and ends such as left over yarn and buttons, paper cut from old magazines, fabric off-cuts, and food packaging etc, as Laine has done here, encouraging recycling and resourcefulness.

Laine has dedicated the book, with thanks, to the work of Safer Medicines, an independent patient safety organisation of scientists and doctors, which aims to change the way our medicines are tested to a system focused firmly on human biology.

How Many Friends Could A Bibbolybob Make If A Bibbolybob Came To Earth?

vegan children's book

How many friends could a Bibbolybob make if a Bibbolybob came to Earth?

(or Wibbolywub and the Earthlings)

A delightful and eccentric story about an alien visitor to Earth, keen to make as many friends as he can and find out about the different types of Earthling.  This story introduces small children to the numbers zero to ten and teaches them about the different types of Earthling – herbivore, omnivore and carnivore.

Without detracting from the charming story, the book subtly shows that if an alien with x-ray vision did come to Earth to learn about Earthlings he would certainly deduce that humans fit in to the herbivore (plant-eating) category.  Lovely😀
