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.

Comments from the web:

“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

Luke Walker: animal stick up for-er

Luke Walker is an eight year old boy with a mind of his own. He’s noticed that life often isn’t fair for animals and that his parents’ and teachers’ justifications for this don’t make sense.

He knows he’s right but he also knows that, in order to do the right thing, he sometimes needs to be sneaky.

These first eight chapters of Luke Walker’s adventures sticking up for animals are funny, inspiring, and very entertaining. Great mischief, great adventures, great fun! Luke Walker is a vegan Just William for the twenty-first century. This book is the first in the Luke Walker series.

“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

“This is wonderful! [#5] I love Distracto Boy, what a great idea! And I really like how Renee likes to quote things, it shows she is a person who is cultured and interested in things. I like that: “Let’s get cake”! Firstly, and most importantly, let’s get cake. 🙂 It is a wonderful twisty turny story, so much happens in it, I really enjoyed reading it. I like the woman who stops George, and the Bureaucrat and the security guard, they are all very funny.”Ann Mogli

Reflecto Girl: Beginnings

Renee Gale was an ordinary girl when she inherited something from her grandma: an ancient Celtic mystical mirror – the Dounto (pronounced doon-toe). It had been passed down through the female line of her family for centuries. The Dounto has the power to reflect people’s misdeeds back onto them. So if Renee holds it in front of someone, whatever they are doing or about to do to someone else will happen to them. With the Dounto Renee is Reflecto Girl, saving all sorts of animals from all sorts of dangers by giving their abusers a taste of their own medicine.

These first four stories tell how it all began for Reflecto Girl. She is just finding her feet. This is only the beginning.

What’s good for the goose is not good for the panda

Patty Panda is hungry but doesn’t know what to eat. Luckily she meets lots of different animals who are happy to share their food, but still has trouble finding something that suits her.

This delightful rhyming story, written and illustrated completely in collage by Lavender Laine, teaches children that we are all different and what’s good for one is not necessarily good for someone else.

It might also inspire children to make art out of old odds and ends (such as left over yarn and buttons, paper cut from old magazines, fabric off-cuts, and food packaging etc) as Laine has done here, encouraging recycling and resourcefulness.

Format: Paperback 34 pages, colour interior, dimensions: 8.5 x 11 in / 216 x 279 mm, vegan children’s book suitable for reading with pre-school children and for older children to read alone.

£4.50 in UK. Prices may vary depending on where it’s printed.

Comments from the web:

“Such a wonderful story with wonderful illustrations 🙂 I have read it before, but it’s brilliant all over again 🙂 I love all the delightful illustrations and details, it is exquisite. It is very good for children to be inspired by how you can make a picture out of lots of different things. When I was a child we made pictures out of sweets. Very inspiring 🙂 And it has a great message, highlighting the fundamental differences between all the wonderful creatures.” WillowtheWhispy

“That story was fantastic 😀 ! I can’t believe all the ways Lavender Laine found to make pictures!! I love the one when she’s walking over the knitted hill, and the one with the blue sky made of postage stamps, and the one with the mushroom tortoise standing under the button manchineel tree, and the one where the panda and the tree are all knitted!! (I will stop listing them there, because I have so many favourites) Awesome. It’s like fantastic land. I also like the way the words are all cut out from magazines, it makes reading so much more fun!!” Egglantine
