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.
The subject of these funny short stories for children, 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!

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.
