Comments Hubert the Pudge: A Vegetarian Tale

  • Ronyell

    I have always loved Henrik Drescher’s wacky illustrations in most of his children’s books, so I decided to give this book a shot. “Hubert the Pudge” is a recent children’s book by Henrik Drescher and it is about how a pudge named Hubert escapes from his cruel master, Farmer Jake to live in the forest. After Hubert grows to be twice the size of an elephant, he goes back to Farmer Jake’s farm to rescue his fellow pudges from being eaten. Alright, it was a bit hard for me to find what I [...]

    This book is almost completely bizarre, but compelling too. It’s horrifying and humorous, and also edifying (though lots of fantasy here too) and inspiring/uplifting, in a way.At first (as an ethical vegan who cares about animal suffering and knows the atrocities) I was horrified that such an “honest” book was written for children, but then I realized it’s a bit of a fable, even though some reality (such as animals being killed for food before they reach anywhere near full growth) are ad [...]

    I'm not sure how I feel about vegetarian tales for kids--I still haven't found one that is just right. They all seem to be preachy-annoying, too wordy for a kid, or they have a neat little ending where all the factory-farmed animals are freed (like this book). The illustrations in this book were the best part--creepy cute!If anyone has any suggestions for veg picture books, let me know!


  • Marta Borowska

    Though the art looks like someone drew it on LSD, the story is a good one to introduce to young children about the meat industry. Though the art makes me like it less, it's still an important teaching/lesson/idea to bring up to kids.


  • Peacegal

    Unusual, retro, and wildly clever, this book will make an awesome addition to the bookshelves of vegetarian school-aged children. (I say school-age because some of the elements of the story may be a bit too dark for very young kids.)


  • Stephanie

    I do think it's important the kids (and adults) face the reality of where meat comes from, but this book was still a little creepy. This is mostly due to the drawings, which seemed to come out of some old, frightening fairy tale. Oh well, I was still pleased to see a vegetarian tale for kids.

    without the humor this book would be a three However, it's pretty funny in its own unique way. The illustrations are a bit creepy but my daughter loves staring at the pictures; she says they're "beautiful." lol


  • Rachel

    I really had high hopes for this book to introduce a vegetarian diet to kids, but the book has an obvious agenda and is extreme to the point of being ridiculous. A disappointment.


  • Kaila

    I don't know what I was expecting but it wasn't whatever this is.

    I love vegetarian tales, don't get me wrongd I love animals and especially porcine creatures. I like the illustration style, too. However, this book was creepy and very heavy-handed without being intriguing or engaging. It is a wee bit distressing to read, honestly. I'll just cut right to the point and say that this book definitely made my list of picture books I would not recommend to anyone other than those who wish to induce nightmares in themselves and/or others.


  • Kathryn

    silly funny little book. great to add to your child's "vegan AR" library.


  • Dray

    Uh, even as a vegetarian this was creepy.
