The two little pigs met a heron

The story continues from yesterday 😀

Story continues tomorrow 🙂

****************************************************

The two little pigs met a heron,

A wise and dignified bird,

“Help us please, to find our way home,”

And she listened to every word.

***

“That’s not what I’d do,” said the heron,

“If I had a dilemma like yours.

If I were you I’d get off by myself,

Don’t get stuck behind closed doors.”

***

The butcher was near so the pigs ran on

While the heron tried to distract him.

He paused for breath, returning her gaze

And she prayed he would never catch them.

Everything changed

Oh dear, it’s not looking good for planet Earth and all its inhabitants.  If you’d like to try to help the bewitched break the spell you could do as Maud suggests and share this story far and wide.  The children of non-vegan parents who are caught up in the spell could be helped to snap out of it if they found this book in their library – it’s worth a try, isn’t it?

The colour version, with Beatrice Wilberforce’s illustrations, is only £3.90

Wicked Witch

and Maud’s original Wicked Wicked Witch and the Ruinous Manipulation, being entirely black and white, is only £2.80.

And, by the way, it’s surprisingly fun how easy it is to make a book look like a real bona fide library book with simple, easily edited, or not, photocopies stuck on the first page.

and maybe even one of those removable plastic book jackets they often have, which come in different sizes and are often on discarded library books 🙂

It’s just harmless fun 😉

Have a good weekend 😀

***************************************

Once upon a time, high on a mountain peak, surrounded by fog night and day, lived a wicked wicked witch. She was tall and thin and had long bony fingers. Her fingernails were green and she had a hard heart from which her purple blood ran cold.

She awoke when the crow cawed and slowly creaked to her feet. She cooked her breakfast of four slices of freshly butchered piglet and two sheep intestine tubes filled with finely minced calf flesh and fried tomatoes and toast. She consumed it all with relish and washed it down with a tall glass of baby growth fluid squeezed from a cow.

After breakfast the witch wiped her greasy mouth with the back of her hand and put the dishes in the sink. It was time to go to work.

For many hundreds of years the witch had been working on her plan to turn the world into a dry, desolate, poisonous place, somewhere only she and the cockroaches could thrive. That may seem like a long time to you and me but to the witch, who had lived in her castle for over ten thousand years, it was nothing.

And for those not so lucky, don’t worry – you too can have your own copy of Maddicts if you order it from Amazon 😉

There’ll be another giveaway next week 😀

vegan graphic novel

This Week’s Giveaway: Maddicts

vegan graphic novel

This week’s giveaway is a copy of Maddicts and you’ve got until Friday to enter.

Maddicts is not for young children.  We don’t recommend it for under 12s.  It’s a vegan graphic novel; a dark satire; a piece of self-indulgent wishful thinking (on my part); it is humorous speculation about what might happen if the natural world fought back and all the animals simultaneously turned on their oppressors and escaped.

Of course you are free to read it in full here, but if you’d like your own copy, comment on this post and your name will be entered into Friday’s draw.

The clock is ticking my friends.  Good luck 😀

Up before dawn …

For the story so far click here

vegan comic for children

I was up before dawn on the morrow and found a strangled vixen outside my door, the poor wee lass was intended to teach me a lesson.  I knew they wouldn’t stop killing whatever I did so, for the sake of their future victims, I still had to try to save those I could.  Leaving Donnan at home to protect the others, I made my way to the Viscount’s estate and tried to scare as many grouse away as I could, before the “sport” began.  I saw his guests arriving and said a prayer for the innocents who would cross their paths.  I stayed out of sight and got ahead of them to the woods.

Such brave and noble men who would, five of them, gang up to slaughter a little bird.

I tried to stay out of sight whilst rushing to pick up the injured before their dogs got to them, but I’m sure it was inevitable that someone would see me.

“Miss Allaway, I thought my man had spoken to you about this.  Ah well, I suppose if you want something done right you have to do it yourself – isn’t that what they say?” The Viscount himself stood over me but I didn’t look up.  I couldn’t take my eyes off the bird whose tail had been clipped by a shot which almost missed him.  He was flapping and gasping and panicking.  I reached out to him as the Viscount spoke again.

“Miss Allaway, I see you cannot be reasoned with.”  I heard a click and that was it.  That was the end of me.

26 Verses of Deidra

rhyming children's story

Where are you going Deidra? is one of our favourite, and one of the most popular, stories on this site so when we decided to publish a compilation of short stories and rhymes for little ones we really wanted to include it.  Unfortunately the new book – entitled “Why are you a vegan?” And other wacky verse for kids – is full of rhyming stories (of course), and Deidra is not one of those.

So, we made it into one – and here it is, the true-ish story of Deidra the dairy cow, in rhyme, in case you’re interested.

This is how it begins:

rhyming children's story

Once there was a dairy farm

With fifty lovely cows.

Most of them were black and white

But some of them were brown.

Gripping stuff I know! 😉
