Santa's First Vegan Christmas

Santa's First Vegan Christmas

By Robin Raven
Illustratedby Kara Maria Schunk

Vegan Publishers, 2016
Hardback, $17.99

This year even Santa Claus has achieved a higher level of consciousness and has listened to and adopted the vegan message. No more will he take advantage of his reindeer in a journey to deliver presents to all the children in the world.

In Santa's First Vegan Christmas, Robin Raven and Kara Maria Schunk have introduced a new kind of Santa who does not harness his reindeer to a sleigh so he can make his nighttime deliveries.

Robin Raven Kara Maria Schunk

Robin tells the story in verse while Kara Maria creates a whimsical Santa and Dana, a lovable reindeer who delivers her animal friendly message to the bearded one and transforms him.

Dana tells Santa:

    "But horses pulling carriages, reindeer pulling sleighs?
    It's all got to end. And I mean starting today!
    How things are, they're not always right.
    Think about how you would feel if this were your plight!"

With Dana's help, Santa changes his ways without using animals, and is still able to play his traditional role to achieve his mission. Dana accompanies Santa, not only to deliver gifts, but also to spread a message of kindness all over the world.

At the same time, Santa undertakes a new plan:

    "For starters, he set all the caged birds free
    Then helped all the trapped fish escape to the sea."

In Santa's First Vegan Christmas, readers will experience a fortuitous pairing of two talents, Robin a storyteller who introduces young children to a world where everyone cares about the welfare of animals and Kara Maria who reveals her remarkable painting talent with endearing scenes of a lovable Santa with all of his adorable animal friends.
