The author of rhyming story book What’s Good For The Goose Is Not Good For The Panda has turned her hand to non-fiction this time, for older readers: Wild Goose Chase – another unique title from collage artist Lavender Laine.
Wild Goose Chase is a collage of excerpts from the brilliant Sacred Cows and Golden Geese by Ray Greek MD and Jean Swingle Greek DVM. Laine has torn pertinent sentences and paragraphs from their meticulously researched and referenced book and collaged them onto found images from many different books and magazines. The result is a short book full of historical and scientific facts, made easier to remember by the images to which they are pasted; a book which demonstrates the futility of animal experiments and explains the corrupt, unscientific reasons for its continuation in spite of superior human-based research alternatives.
Every student should know these facts. And every reader who wants more detailed information can find it with ease by referring to the relevant pages in Sacred Cows and Golden Geese indicated on the torn-out excerpts.
Wild Goose Chase contains no disturbing images or descriptions. It is colourful, eye-catching, engrossing, honest, informative and designed to be memorable. Recommended for readers aged 12 and up.
