Lena of Vegitopia and the Mystery of the Missing Animals
by Sybil Severin, illustrated by Carlos Patiño
review by Justice Beske (age 12)
I liked Lena of Vegitopia and the Mystery of the Missing Animals.
I think it has a good story, and it is a good book for introducing
young kids to a story with a message of compassion. The drawings were
very well done and I think it’s a good read for all ages. The story is
about a girl named Lena who helps the mother animals find their kids
who have mysteriously disappeared in the peaceful land of Vegitopia. I
think the character of Carnista, who is the antagonist, could have been
depicted with more sympathy but otherwise, it was well done.
It might be scary for some littler kids but it all works out in the end
and I think that most will enjoy the adventure of Lena. It is a very
colorful book with a unique art style. I think it would make a good
gift. There is even a recipe for Lena’s magical vegan carrot cake in it
that parents and their children can bake together and appreciate the
story even more.
