Little Chicken Classic – Luke Walker: animal stick up for-er

In a playful imitation of the old Penguin Classics, we bring you the first Little Chicken classic! Drawn untidily and off-centre in crayon, this book cover is the perfect wrapping for stories about Luke 😀

This edition contains all the stories from the first two Luke Walker books but it is written in ordinary Times New Roman instead of the handwritten font used in the others. For this reason it has less pages and costs less to print. Complete with the same hand-drawn illustrations.

For the uninitiated, Luke Walker is an eight year old boy with a mind of his own. Growing up in a meat-eating family, he’s noticed that life often isn’t fair for animals and that his parents’ and teachers’ justifications for this don’t make sense. Wanting to right wrongs, he becomes a self-styled vegan outlaw who will not play by the rules if the rules mean being unkind. He knows he’s right but he also knows that, in order to do the right thing, he sometimes needs to be sneaky.

This Little Chicken Classic compilation contains the first sixteen chapters of Luke Walker’s adventures sticking up for animals. They are funny, exciting, and very entertaining. Great mischief, great adventures, great fun!

100% of our profits from the sale of this book go to the wonderful Hillside Animal Sanctuary in Norfolk 😀

Format:  Paperback 179 pages, black and white interior, dimensions: 6 x 9 in / 152 x 229 mm, vegan children’s book of short stories, suitable for ages 8 to 108.

£6.50 in UK. Prices may vary depending on where it’s printed.

Comments from the web:

I thought this book was really funny and interesting. It is a great book of short stories, of the naughty adventures of a little boy. It is a great read for confident readers, and I enjoyed it a lot as an adult. If you like Just William, then you will like this too.

“In a way it also reminds me of some of Anne Fine’s works too, because it is all in the perspective of a child at school, which is often a very alternative perspective, of a special type, filled with a certain wisdom applicable to the situations that children are placed in by adults and society. Really humorous stories.”Ashanti Oberon

Review excerpt: “Children reading this book will surely be inspired to speak out for animals. It will germinate in them the seeds of a confident personality and can surely teach young readers that standing alone does not necessarily mean you are wrong! …. The best part about this book is that it is not preachy, but mocks this Janus-faced world through its humor. You will find this book, not a lecture but it will open your mind to the harsh realities. This book is definitely a must-read, and will surely arouse in you the want of being vegan!”Arnav Gupta, The BookWorm. For full review click here.

Luke Walker and the Secret Society of animal stick up for-ers

Luke Walker started sticking up for animals when he was 8 and told his parents he wasn’t going to eat meat any more. From that point on he trusted no one and questioned everything. He became a self-styled outlaw who spoke out and took action when animals needed his help, regardless of the trouble he got into.

Now, in the third book of the series, he’s 11 and at secondary school. He’s still the same brave outspoken animal defender but he’s not alone. Three friends have joined him and together they are the Secret Society of animal stick up for-ers.

As always, Luke’s rebellious antics will amuse and inspire. Whenever you’re faced with an animal-related dilemma, think to yourself – what would Luke do? Chapters 17 to 24 of the Luke Walker: animal stick up for-er series of vegan short stories by Violet Plum. Printed in hand-written font.

All our profits from the sale of this book go to the wonderful Hillside Animal Sanctuary in Norfolk.

“This is the third book in the Luke Walker series. This time our hero is accompanied by 3 other brave animal stick up for-ers. Luke is growing up, and as he continues to lead by being an amazing role model, some of his peers have decided to walk alongside him and take action for the animals. This book is so wonderful. It continues to offer such excellent lessons for our kids. The main characters demonstrate the value of working as a team, how we are stronger united. With varied personalities and perspectives, through honesty, listening to and supporting each other, and everyone pitching in, these youngsters go out into the world as leaders, educating, making a difference. They touch on the importance of compassion, respect and kindness for effective communication. The story is again ultimately one of hope. It inspires and motivates us to persevere. It makes us smile and laugh. It makes us feel certain that doing something, via the heart, to make the world a better place, to save lives, help the planet, improve health, is well worth the effort. Our children are being taught that, yes, they too can make a difference, they have wisdom and power.”PniB

“My daughter ( 7 yrs ) and I just finished reading More Luke Walker Animal Stick Up for – Er. While we are so grateful that you came out with this second book so quickly……. we are now waiting with bated breath for the next one!!!! Blush Blush, no pressure or anything :). Ok, so this book was more intense than the first, dealing with more dramatic, blatant, risk taking acts of animal rights activism. At one or two points in the story my sensitive daughter was too scared to go on, fearing Luke might find himself in some real hot water. In the end I think what stands out, what comes to the foreground, is the place of innocence, of untainted youthful compassion that knows beyond a shadow of a doubt what is right and what is wrong, where all the acts of defiance emerge from. Once again Luke has touched and inspired us with his intuitive understanding of what kindness and respect means, and the way he takes up the gauntlet to bravely make the world a better place. I LOVED the ending! Thank you so much.”Pnina B

“Very funny 🙂 This is great because it raises these important issues without pulling you into a pit of despair. It’s really funny. I think that laughter is really important for helping people to think about things they don’t think they can let themselves think about. Luke is great because he does the things everyone would like to do if it even occurred to them that they could.”egglantine

“This is amazing, I wish more people did things like Luke! So funny, what a wonderful idea for a story 😀 I was laughing all the way through.”eight dolls sitting in a row

“My 7 year old daughter and I just finished reading Luke Walker: Animal stick up for-er. We just loved it. I’m quick to tear up so I had to pause my reading many times to compose myself lol. We love Luke!! What a wonderful, endearing, inspiring young hero / role model. The story is a funny, touching, and exciting adventure of an 8 year old boy who fancies himself a Robin Hood-like outlaw with a vegan twist. He follows his kind heart, and sense of what is right, wherever it leads him. I hope Violet writes many more Luke Walker books. Thank you very much,”P and L

“These books are a great read ~ so, so hard to put down once started ! Thoroughly recommended for the animal lovers, and great literature lovers.”Dave S
