We usually hear animal rights activists speak on behalf of animals because animals cannot speak human languages, BUT … For the first time in history, animals themselves are fighting for their rights in a human court. In the story, The Turtle Who Fights For Animal Rights, animals come up with firm arguments and very respectable witnesses to support them such as Nikola Tesla, Albert Einstein, Leonardo Da Vinci, Leo Tolstoy, Franz Kafka, and George Bernard Shaw (to name a few).

Vegan Fest is the largest vegan fair in Austria, where I had the opportunity to present my vegan books for children. I enjoyed talking to many inspiring people from the vegan community and one of them was Mr. Hubert Gassner, whose story is fantastic. He is a former conventional animal farmer who has become vegan. I would like to share with you his incredible story that shows how real change is possible.

Why shouldn’t we visit the zoo?

Why shouldn’t we visit the zoo?

One of the tricky questions about zoos is whether they are good for animals, mainly because like prisons, not all zoos are alike. There are prisons where inmates have their own toilet, shower, TV, and even a yard.  Some giraffes have two or three rooms, a lounge, a garden, and a dining room.

How vegan children’s books can inspire a kind world?

Adults usually give children lessons on how to be kind and how to treat living creatures. It is expected of adults to be wiser and set an example for children by their own behavior.

In the story ‘The Doctor Donkey’, the child teaches the adults how to treat animals kindly.

How can vegan picture books encourage kids to eat fruits and vegetables?

How can vegan picture books encourage kids to eat fruits and vegetables?

We don’t need to make up fictional vegan superheroes when we have plenty of animals that show us how it is possible to be super healthy, extremely strong and amazingly fast just by eating plant-based food. 
I’m afraid it won’t help much if we just give kids a lecture on nutrition. I think that young children can learn more from a monkey or an elephant in a story than from an adult telling them to ‘eat your veggies!’ ☺

You just don’t eat someone you love

You just don’t eat someone you love

One creative way to promote the vegan belief that animals should be treated as friends, not as food, are picture books that encourage empathy and respect towards all living beings. One of them, written in a witty way, is An Unordinary Lion about a scary predator who decides to get out of the cruel food chain that he was part of.
