Venus Aqueous: Prison Break

It’s 2019 already?!  Well, we hope you’re having a happy new year so far and here’s some more good news: Venus Aqueous Prison Break is now a big, colourful comic book!

For those unfamiliar with Venus, you can catch up with the story so far at Violet’s Vegan Comics, and once you’ve got to know her, you’re bound to want to read episode 5 😀

In this chapter, Venus and friends have heard terrible things about the goings-on at their local public aquarium and they’re going undercover as volunteers to investigate. But what they find out is even more shocking than they knew. Their aquatic friends desperately need the girls’ help and Venus, Jean and Adi won’t let them down.

It’s another exciting adventure from the  popular comic series ‘Venus Aqueous’ about a champion swimmer with the ability to hear and understand marine animals. This full-colour second edition replaces the earlier black and white publication of the same name.  And, as if that wasn’t enough, there’s a crossword about marine animals at the back!

Little Chicken Classic – Luke Walker animal stick up for-er

Remember the old Penguin Classics?  Well here’s a Little Chicken Classic.  The first.  It isn’t quite as pristine as its Penguin counterparts because Luke has got his grubby mits on it and defaced it with stickers and smudges.  Luckily,  they don’t obscure the title 😀

The Little Chicken Classic – Luke Walker animal stick up for-er contains the first sixteen chapters of our beloved outlaw’s adventures, complete with illustrations.  It seemed a good idea to put them all in one volume, making them more portable and therefore easier to keep on hand for public transport delays or long waits in doctors’ waiting rooms or whenever you have a few moments at your disposal.  Getting so much adventure into so few pages was achieved by simply changing the font – this Little Chicken Classic is written in the classic Times New Roman which fills less than half the number of pages taken up by the handwritten font used in the first two books.  So, there’s your behind-the-scenes look at what made this edition possible which might be obvious to some and uninteresting to many, but since I assume you already know who Luke Walker is and what kind of mischief he gets up to, I had to post something different about this edition.

On the other hand, perhaps I’m wrong to assume anything.  Perhaps you’ve never heard of Luke Walker.  Perhaps you don’t know that he’s an eight year old, growing up in a typical meat-eating household, who doesn’t just accept things unquestioningly.  Perhaps you didn’t realise that, despite the fact that he’s never met a veg*n in his life, he decides to become one after discovering what bacon really is, or rather, was.  Perhaps you don’t know that whilst he is perceived by parents and teachers alike to be naughty, rebellious, argumentative and troublesome, he is in actual fact extremely thoughtful, empathetic, wise and brave.  He is outspoken but uses more than just words to stick up for animals in all sorts of different ways.  He is a righteous warrior for the innocent victims who can’t help themselves, or damsons in distress as he calls them.  He’s a modern Robin Hood.

These stories are funny, exciting and touching but if you don’t believe me you can read them for free here.  If you’d like to gift them to a friend or read them to your children at bedtime you can buy them from Amazon 😀

Fuzzy Mud by Louis Sachar

We love Louis Sachar (whose name rhymes with cracker – in case you were wondering) and after reading Fuzzy Mud I decided that it qualified as a vegan book for children 🙂 It doesn’t use the v-word but the main protagonist seems to be a plant-eater (there is no mention of any animal protein in her diet) and the grippingly entertaining story is wrapped around a vitally  important environmental message.  I wouldn’t be at all surprised to discover that Louis Sachar was veg*n but I have no idea whether he actually is.  Anyway, this book qualifies so I wanted to share it with you 🙂

The story is about Tamaya who has a scholarship to a posh school and walks there every day with Marshall who is a year older than her (they’re pre-teens I think). They never go through the woods because there are creepy rumours about a strange guy who lives there.  And they’ve been told not to.  Meanwhile, on the other side of the woods a laboratory is developing a new “green” fuel, made of artificially engineered living micro-organisms, aka ‘fuzzy mud’.  Well,  one day, after being challenged to a fight by the school bully, Marshall decides, for his own safety, to go home via the woods.  Tamaya doesn’t want to go that way but she’s not supposed to walk home alone so she follows him.  And that’s when it gets really scary!

I’m not going to tell you anymore (and don’t spoil it for yourself by reading the Amazon blurb because it gives too much away) because you should get the book and enjoy the whole thing from the beginning 🙂

The Rebel Gang and the Number Ciphers

The Rebel Gang and the Number Ciphers is finally available in paperback!  Woohoo!!!! 😀

Suspicious ciphertexts discovered by state investigators.  Assumed to be the correspondence of a hostile rebel gang.  Those in charge fear an attempt to overthrow the government.  M is tasked with tracking down the rebels, discovering their plans and bringing them to justice before they destroy civilization 😮

This is the classified document, complete with uncovered ciphertexts and suspect profiles, which details the investigation’s progress.

The Rebel Gang and the Number Ciphers is a funny, intriguing and sometimes badly-spelled code-cracking journey of discovery, illustrated with a mixture of collage and ink drawings.

This story is fiction and any resemblance to real people or events is entirely coincidental 😉

You can get a better look at the book here, and even read the whole story here for free if you like 🙂
