Are your books available in my language?

Compassionate Press books are only available in English, but they will be translated into Spanish very soon. Our goal is to have these books available in as many foreign languages as possible.

Are your books available in my country?

Compassionate Press books are distributed worldwide wherever books are sold online and in many vegan retail shops. Any bookstore will be able to order a book if requested.

What is the appropriate age for your books?

At Compassionate Press there will always be a book for everyone. However, our first book Milk and Cookie a Little Spooky is targeted to children 8 and up and adults of all ages because it digs very deep into the power of our personal choices (in this case dairy) and its direct effects on the animals. Our second book A Pig IS a Dog IS a Kid is geared toward a younger crowd, It has a more gentle approach. 

Will your books turn my non-vegan friends into a vegan?

Compassionate Press will cover almost everything that has to do with animals and their use – rodeos, zoos, circuses, sports, hunting, animal testing, aquariums, clothing  and address world hunger, pollution, injustice, and more. Our books focus on compassionate lifestyle choices that anyone can make to help animals and the planet.

Will I ever be vegan enough?

At Compassionate Press we strongly believe that veganism is not about being perfect, it’s about living our lives causing the least amount of harm possible, if we could live happy healthy lives without harming others, why wouldn't we? That’s what veganism is all about.
