Luke Walker And The Secret Society of Animal Stick Up For-Ers ~ Book Review

“It’s not going to open now,” said Luke, “the train’s moving.”

Synopsis

Luke Walker and his secret society are ready to stick up for animals, even though if it means getting into trouble. This book of the Luke Walker series covers chapters 17 to 24 and takes the reader through the funny, and courageous adventures of four school kids, headed by Luke Walker. 

The first chapter talks about cognitive dissonance, A psychological condition in which one holds two conflicting beliefs on a single topic, which results in turning a deaf ear to what is generally right. Non-vegetarians may have pets, but considering their food choices seem hard. Luke Walker, being so small a boy, finds this difficult to grasp.

The fun-filled stories continue as the children attempt to find aliens, send letters to cruel organisations and try to persuade their school to stop supporting animal testing.

Things get a bit tricky when people start viewing our young animal activists as, ‘insensitive’. But after all, it’s part of the job!

Craving for exciting and knowledgeable adventures? Then read this book!

Review

Before jumping into the review, I would, again, like to thank the author, Violet Plum, for sending me a copy of this awesome book. Do check out her website here.

The best thing about this book is, that it is not magical. Seldom in real life do we get solutions to our problems very quickly. Animal activism is a large cycle. You have to aware more and more people, and not get too desperate to reach the final goal. Of peace. Never in this whole book were Luke Walker and his friends entirely successful. When they tried to save chickens of a farm, they could not save all. Restaurants didn’t pay heed to their pleas. But, they were successful in enlightening people. Be it at school, or on the streets.

I noticed that the author tried to incorporate accents in the words. I have noticed something similar in the books of Mark Twain. Luke walker pronounces words like, ‘exactly’ as ‘ezzactly’. It was real fun reading his little mispronunciations. Just emphasises the fact that our animal activist is so young!

And… this book has got some pretty useful knowledge, for example, names of medical organisations which don’t support animal testing. Funding their researches will directly help our four-legged friends!

I was looking forward to more graphics in this book. After all, they are the essence of Violet’s Vegan Stories! But. nevertheless, there were some awesome illustrations

Luke Walker has got some unthinkable ideas which he plans to put into action. All through the book, he maintains his calm, as his best friend Joe keeps on worrying. 

I would recommend to this book to people out there who have a taste for funny, comical adventures. Adventures with a moral. Do check it out! So long!

I am a 14-year-old bookworm. Reading is the fuel that I need to survive! It gives me a greater sense of the big world around me from my cosy couch. I have made reading my best companion and a teacher. The happiness reading brings me is immense. I read books of all genres, and here is the take on the books from a book worm's view!

  1. I enjoyed the review. I must admit, I found myself unconciously placing “Sky” in front of Walker. Though young master Walker isn’t fighting a war in a galaxy far, far away, he seems fit for battle nonetheless.

    1. Oh, thanks a lot, dear friend!😊📚 And, yeah, Luke Walker is doing no less for us! It would seem a bit odd imagining Sky Walker playing with walks-talkies though😂

  2. Thanks for this mindful review, Arnav. The book sounds fun — and more so when it has made learning fun. Best to Violet. I chuckled at her comment about naming the character. I can’t hear the name Luke without thinking of Luke Skywalker. 😀 Hugs on the wing!

    1. Thank you so so much for the appreciation, Teagan! And this book is super fun. I was myself unaware of this naming trivia before I read Violet’s comment. Thanks for stopping by😀🐱

      1. Can imagine. 😀
        I’ve published a book myself (which does not immediately make me an “author”) but I had to take insights from some before doing so. They’re definitely normal people!

      2. Oh, absolutely! I’d totally LOOOVE that! The book is called “Lights Camera Auschwitz!” It’s a story that takes place in a Nazi Germany concentration camp. I was 15 when I wrote it and I’ve definitely outgrown it a bit now, but I’d LOOVE for it to be reviewed. Thank you so very much for the kind offer. May I have your email ID?

  3. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Chrome. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Thanks
