Why are you a vegan? and other rhyming stories for English language learners

The long awaited book of rhyming stories for English language learners is finally here!  Over the years we have had  several requests for a simplification of the vocabulary in some of our rhyming stories for little ones so that they are suitable for people learning English as a foreign language.  This has finally been achieved thanks to Madeleine Lifsey, an English language teacher, who worked with Violet to re-word the stories so that they are all written in present tense, simple vocabulary.  The result is this lovely little book 😀

The five popular rhyming stories, Why are you a vegan?, “I’m not dinner!”, Edmund’s Lunch, bones and teeth and Where are you going Deidra?, adapted for English language learners, can be enjoyed here for free but if you want to use them in the classroom, this fully illustrated paperback is just the thing 😀

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 😀

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 🙂
