About the Author
Sybil Severin is the author of Lena of Vegitopia.
“I was a little worried that this story would be too traumatic for my 4-year old (she is really sensitive about kidnapped baby animals!), but the book doesn’t show any pictures of the baby animals locked up so it didn’t produce any tears. It was also refreshing that Lena and Carnista didn’t argue about “eating baby animals is wrong,” since any child inherently understands that taking baby animals from their parents is bad. Instead, Lena frees the animals simply by offering a piece of cake – an approach to vegan activism that usually works…Overall, Lena is a cute book which won’t just reaffirm the decision not to eat meat, but teaches children how to deal with the meat-eaters they encounter” – Diane Vukovic, VegBooks. “Lena of Vegitopia and the Mystery of the Missing Animals.” 13 September 2014
“While my daughter loved that there was a princess in the book, I loved this fanciful tale about Vegitopia for the peaceful existence the animals and humans live in – made me wish I lived there too! And I admit the part where the baby animals went missing caught in my throat because that is a reality for so many animals. Fortunately, with Lena Lentil Bean and the princess, the ending is a happy one. (And with a yummy vegan recipe at the end too!)” – P is for Preschooler
