Change The World With Rose And Chili

Here’s a cute little children’s book by Malte Hartwieg 🙂

Change The World With Rose And Chili has been written for little children who don’t know the truth about where their food comes from, and it explains in simple terms that animals are not here for our use, they are here for their own reasons.

With adorable illustrations, Malte Hartwieg takes Rose and her best friend Chili on a journey to an imaginary world where, one by one, Rose meets individuals who are suffering because humans use them for food or clothing: a fox who has no coat, a sheep who has been robbed of her wool, a chicken bereft of eggs and a cow with no milk for her calf.  At every meeting Rose is moved to help these individuals by giving them her warm clothes or finding plant-based foods to replace the animal-based ones, and the imaginary world becomes a brighter, greener, happier place.

By the end, when Rose and Chili return home, Rose has learned how easy it is to change the real world: simply eat plants instead of animals.

This book needs to be on the shelves of nurseries and pre-schools everywhere so that little ones can learn, before they get brainwashed into accepting the status quo, how simple it is to change the world.

Just lovely 😀

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 😀

“One should always have something sensational to read in the train.” 

Oscar Wilde

The Importance of Being Earnest

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 font 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 😀

Let the dogs out

Let the dogs out has been re-done and is now available in paperback with full page watercolour illustrations.

As you might imagine, although there is a happy ending for the story’s hero, this one is something of a tear-jerker.  You can read the whole story here, if you want to try before you buy, but, basically, it’s about a beagle who was born and raised in a laboratory breeding facility.  The story is told from his point of view and we learn how life is for him and his peers in this bleak place.  The reader actually knows more than he does because they can understand what the humans are saying, and they can read the label on the cage and the order form that slips to the floor.

The whole business is a very unhappy prospect indeed.  However, about half way through the book everything changes: one of the humans helps him to escape and there is an exciting car chase and a desperate search and, well, I don’t want to give everything away.

While there are no images of experiments on animals, it is very sad to learn about places like these, even in this PG depiction, so I know that no one is going to be choosing this one for a bedtime story.  But it is a story that needs to be told and widely shared.  Everyone should be aware of what it’s like for laboratory animals so that they are motivated to fight against vivisection; to refuse to donate to charities which fund vivisection; and to fight for a change in the law so that animals will no longer be bred, enslaved, tortured and killed by the people in these places.

So this is a great book for campaigners who wish to enlighten people about the realities of vivisection because, without actually depicting the cruel experiments, it conveys the hopelessness and helplessness felt by its innocent victims and inspires an urge to change things or at least to support those who are.  With that in mind, the end of the book includes information about the real company and events that informed the story and provides information about organisations fighting against vivisection and funding non-animal research to replace it.  All this information is also included at the bottom of the story page on Violet’s Vegan e-Comics.

Where are you going Deidra?

children's ebook

Deidra, a dairy cow, keeps disappearing and won’t tell anyone where she’s going.  Her friends are very curious but she’s not giving anything away and, since she’s always back by milking time, the farmer’s not worried.  In this colourfully illustrated short storty for little ones (ages 2 and up) you can find out what Deidra’s up to and why she needs to be so secretive about it.

Where are you going Deidra?, which is inspired by real life events,  has been around for a while  and the rhyming version of it is included the paperback “Why are you a vegan?” and other wacky verse for kids.  But now it has been digitally remastered (well, it’s got a new font 😉 ) and is available in mobi format (ie suitable for kindle) from The Vegan Bookstore at the very reasonable price of $0.99 USD

A lovely picture book with a happy ending to keep on your device 😀

The Wicked Witch’s Plan to Get Rid of Everyone

vegan fairy tale

The Wicked Witch’s Plan to Get Rid of Everyone is a grim and gruesome fairy tale in traditional style.  Written by Maud Earnshaw, the tale was originally published under the title The Wicked Wicked Witch and the Ruinous Manipulation and illustrated in black and white by the author, but this new edition, illustrated in full colour by Beatrice Wilberforce, is somehow even more creepy.

In spite of its old fashioned style and supernatural imaginings, this story is strikingly relevant and honest.  The author seems to have looked at the world and puzzled over a reality in which humans are determined to destroy the Earth they depend upon, and decided eventually that there must be some supernatural force – a spell – compelling people to act against all reason.

Beatrice Wilberforce illustrates this edition with original artwork collaged together from her own new drawings and pieces of illustration from other children’s books.  As a result, the images perfectly compliment the story, reflecting the theme of deception central to the prose.  Just as children’s story books often portray animal farming as a good and healthy, happy affair, they hide a sinister truth which is exposed by this book.  In Wilberforce’s collaged images, the truth peaks through the colourful lies.

This is a wonderful, short tale that every child should read so that they can break the spell and save the world.
