Planet Cannibal is an absorbing and rather shocking tale of a planet where, as the title would suggest, people eat each other. There are obvious parallels between life on planet Cannibal and life on our own planet; the only difference being that here on earth, it is the animal kingdom that is suffering. Well-written and nicely illustrated by Dorreya Wood, a dedicated vegan, this book is a real eye-opener, which will cause the reader to stop and think about the tremendous cruelty humans inflict upon the animal kingdom--a cruelty which, as the author stresses, is completely unnecessary and based on greed or habit. It may well lead to a change in lifestyle as the reader is made aware of exactly how much the animal kingdom suffers at the hands of human beings. Readers may choose to become vegans, or at least vegetarians, upon completion of the book! It is well worth reading, and it is heartening to find an author who champions the cause of the prevention of animal suffering because of her own obvious deep-seated compassion and empathy with these poor creatures, which we really do not need to eat, mistreat or experiment on.
