How did Vivi the Supervegan come about?
The idea of 'Vivi the Supervegan' came about when I first went vegan 3 years ago!
I immediately went online to look for some vegan books for my children. I soon realised that there was a lack of vegan children's books out there which still had an element of fun, mischief and magic in which children love in stories. I bought some educational books but really felt there was a place and a need for a children's story book. So I wrote Vivi the Supervegan, with the hope that it will encourage children to take a stand, empower them to be compassionate and kind. We are just about to launch the second book in my series; Vivi and the Planet Protector on 3rd October. I truly hope that my books will help vegan children and non vegan children understand that we all have power with our choices and in educating and inspiring others to make changes.
"I loved this story and Vivi's mission to be a fierce protector of animals! Her story reminds us that compassion is a true superpower and that we each have the capacity to be real-life heroes to the animals who desperately need us to care more. Vivi's idealism and the charming illustrations reflect a harmony between people and animals that I dream about!"

"Tina Newman's story book about the adventures of Vivi and the Planet Protector is the most beautiful way to make the problems of the human/animal interaction accessible for children. I had a hard time reading due to teary eyes. Beautiful."
