About the Author
Sam and Aiden George co-created Exploding Gummies as a bedtime story when Aiden was only four years old. The father and son live in southern California and are passionate about creating inventions that help improve human life.
Sam transitioned to ethical Veganism while a teenager, over two decades before Aiden was born. He began writing about animal rights and Veganism in college creative writing classes, often offending the professors at his Midwestern university since Veganism was not mainstream in 1989. After college, he ghost-edited blogs and papers on animal rights and ethical Vegan themes, but never considered publishing a book under his own name until after Aiden was born. This book comes to life because Aiden wants to share the stories we have written with his friends and children the world over.
Sam believes that Veganism is the best ethical gift he can give Aiden, who has been Vegan since birth.

 the horrible injustices suffered by animals in slaughterhouses (for now, we're sticking with a simple, "we don't eat animals because they are our friends" ;)
 the many ways that animal suffering is hidden in our society
 going against the grain isn't easy, physically or mentally
 we have a responsibility/duty to know not only where we come from, but also where our food comes from
 things are not always what they seem
 how hard it is for parents to let children make their own decisions (and, likewise, how important it is for them to take ownership of their choices)
and, on a lighter note...
 color mixing ;)
I wasn't a huge fan of the ending; I wish the gummies got their point across to the little boy trying to eat them in some other way, but this could just lead to another conversation about how violence begets violence!
Overall, it's as cute as a story can be about animal suffering; it's hard to talk about what happens to animals in a slaughterhouse without making people uncomfortable... but it's so important to unveil what happens (dead-on, without any sugar-coating). And I love that it's about gelatin - no one seems to know what gelatin is?! I want to get this book for my adult friends, they are always disgusted when I explain what it is and where it comes from!
