Very Gentle, Beautiful Book
on April 26, 2012
After all the media hype over the "violence" of this book, I couldn't help but wonder if graphic images were included..they are NOT. This book is the antithesis of violent, it's very gentle prose and loving illustrations can't help but leave you with a sense of peace and genuine compassion for animals. I feel more than comfortable to hand it over to my 7 year-old niece and am so thankful a book like this has been written.
The message is about choice -not guilt, about education - not indoctrination, and somehow the author has managed to take a very complex subject and turn it into an easily comprehensible story. I believe this book is a great introduction to veganism and compassion, not only for children, but teens and adults as well. Every public library should have a copy, please request a copy at yours!
Ruby Roth couldn't have done a better job and I look forward to her future work..(and her illustrations are so beautiful, they would even look great as a t-shirt or bag collection).
