We have just finished making our very first kids book, The Six-Foot Rats and we will be celebrating by having an official book launch in Christchurch this November!
We aim to make the reach of this book as big as possible and educate as many young Kiwi minds as we can about the important issue of animal testing. Our aim is to have the book in all primary schools in NZ, as many libraries as possible and it will be available in all good bookstores! All profits from the book will go towards funding our anti-animal testing campaigns.
Come and celebrate the launch of The Six-Foot Rats, our new children's book with us — all of our supporters are welcome!
There will be vegan nibbles, the first-ever live reading of the book and lots of kid-friendly fun activities including live entertainment, cruelty-free face painting, crafts, meeting a real-life rat, a photo booth and more!
We will also have books for sale and our author and illustrator Rebecca Gibbs Illustration will be there to sign copies for you!
More about the book:

Whilst this topic is a serious and often upsetting one, The Six-Foot Rats instead focusing on the fundamental truth (stressing the FUN), as discovered by the lab rats in the book: animals are not humans and it is strange and bizarre to compare the two.
