All The Right Reasons To Be Vegan ! Apr 21, 2006
Benjamin Zephaniah is simply amazing. This wonderful book provides all the reasons why people should be vegans. With levity and intelligence Benjamin wondrously writes about animal rights, ecology, reverence for all life, health and the paramount goal to live in a universally peaceful planet. This is a must read for children and adults who love animals and who want the world to become a more humane and less violent place.
One of the best modern british poets. May 23, 2005
I have had the 'privilidge' of seeing Benjamin Zephaniah preform live in manchester (uk) and to put it simply, he is an amazing preformer and an even better poet. English poets usually have the 'white, middle class, conservative, generally boring' sterotype, but Zephaniah breaks this mold, his poems point out the political, social and personal problems in the modern world. I would greatly reccommend this book to anyone who likes quirky, left-wing poetry.
