Theme: gently funny, non-sentimental story about death in a play context, from a child's' view.

'The whole world is full of dead things,' said Esther. 'In every bush there is a bird, a butterfly, a mouse. Someone must be kind and look after them. Someone must make a sacrifice and see that all these things are buried.' 'Who must?' I asked. 'We must,' she said. Esther was very brave. I was little and scared...One summer's day we started a business called Funerals Ltd, to help all the poor dead little animals in the world. Esther did the digging, I wrote the poems, and Esther's little brother, Puttie, cried.

3 Animal Pharm One Man's Struggle to Discover the Truth About Mad Cow Disease and Variant CJD
PURDEY, MARK, PURDEY, NIGEL
1905570112 / 9781905570119 2007 Paperback 
illustrations
Mark Purdey's life changed one day in 1984 when a Ministry of Agriculture inspector told him he must administer a toxic organophosphate pesticide to his dairy herd. Passionately committed to organic farming and convinced of the harmful effects of chemicals in the environment, he refused to comply. 'It was as if my whole life became focused', he explained later. Before they had a chance to prosecute, Purdey took the Ministry to court and won his case. These experiences led him to challenge the orthodox line on the origins of Mad Cow Disease and its human counterpart variant CJD. Could the insecticide used in the official programme have precipitated the spread of the disease?Purdey's quest to discover the truth was hampered at every turn by government bureaucracies and self-serving scientific cliques who sought to smear and marginalize him. Dogged by dirty tricks and forced to work alone as something of a scientific sleuth, he struggled to reveal hidden interests and dangerous secrets. His supporters included many members of the public, as well as Prince Charles and the poet Ted Hughes. The latter wrote to him expressing 'a million congratulations'.Increasingly sceptical of the official narrative, Purdey was certain that toxic environmental factors would provide answers, and so embarked on a self-funded worldwide odyssey to investigate.
"Animal Pharm" follows him on these eco-detective trails to locations as diverse as Iceland, Sardinia, Colorado and Australia. Purdey uncovers contamination from industry, munitions, pesticides, nuclear experiments and natural geology, linking these with the emergence of a range of neurodegenerative diseases. His research is at once compelling and disturbing, helping to create a paradigm shift in our understanding of the relationship of pollutants to disease and health.

<B>Animals </B><I> An Imaginative Zoology</I>, KONIG, KARL,  AYLWARD, RICHARD
4 Animals An Imaginative Zoology
KONIG, KARL, AYLWARD, RICHARD
0863159664 / 9780863159664 2013 Paperback 
Karl Konig, the founder of the Camphill movement, had great compassion and empathy for people on the margins of society. Equally, he felt the same brotherly feelings towards the animal world. This remarkable book offers a closer understanding of some specific mammals, fish and birds and, along the way, great insight into human nature as well. A combination of three previous editions, Konig considers the mythological and historical background, and unique characteristics, of elephants, bears, horses, cats and dogs; penguins, seals, dolphins, salmon and eels; and swans and stork, sparrows and doves. Together, the lively sketches form a visionary zoology.

5 Animals are Our Brothers and Sisters Why Animal Experiments are Misleading and Wrong, Responsible Medicine Based on a Spiritual View of Creation
HARTINGER, WERNER, COLLIS, JOHANNA
1902636724 / 9781902636726 2006 Paperback 
illustrations
'The animals are as much God's children as we are, so they are our brothers and sisters' - St Francis of Assisi. Respected surgeon and medical doctor, Werner Hartinger investigates the claims and counterclaims concerning experimentation on animals. Through meticulous analysis he comes to the conclusion that animal experiments are not only unnecessary, but that the experiments themselves are questionable and lead to meaningless results. The cruelty imposed upon animals is therefore not only gratuitous, he argues, but is unhelpful in the development of good medicine for human beings. Hartinger writes from many years' experience within the medical profession, and with ample scientific data to back his findings. He also tackles the spiritual aspect of this question, inspired by the work of the Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner. Painting on a vast canvas, he demonstrates the sibling relationship between humans and animals in the context of cosmic and spiritual evolution. The author gives a commentary on Christian teachings regarding animals, examining the biblical commandments. He also studies the varieties of diseases and their causes, and the hidden aspects of sickness and health.

8 Beauty without the Beasts: A Guide to Cruelty-Free Personal Care
CHASE, HEATHER
1930051603 / 9781930051607 Paperback 
Consumers today are growing increasingly animal-conscious.

Yet, caring, compassionate people still wonder how they can look and feel great without wearing or consuming animal products.

Heather Chase has the answer. In her groundbreaking book, Chase provides information and tools to help consumers choose animal-friendly skin care products, apparel, food, entertainment, and more. Beauty without the Beasts contains specific product guidelines as well as background information on what products contain animal parts and how you can avoid them.

''Heather Chase shows us that saving the world, saving our intergrity, and saving our faces can be sheer delight. Transform your beauty rituals into acts of human revolution/evolution with the help of this unique book.''—Susan McElroy, author, Animals as Teachers and Healers

<B>Blue Forest, The </B><I> </I>, FISCHER, LUKE
9 Blue Forest, The
FISCHER, LUKE
1584201479 / 9781584201472 2015 Hardback 
The Blue Forest is a collection of seven highly imaginative bedtime stories - one story for each night of the week, and each story featuring one of seven colours. The stories, set in a magical blue forest, tell of mysterious night-time events and relationships involving humans and animals and nature.
In the first story, a small girl, wearing a dress as white as the stars and embroidered with fine golden thread, walks a path through the forest of blue trees. While making her way through the silent woods, she discovers a casket of jewels from which she selects a silver ring. As she places it on her finger it twinkles in unison with a star, which just at that moment peers through the foliage of a nearby tree. In the last story an old woman tends a garden where the flowers unfold at nightfall to greet the stars. While the old woman sings and plants blue seedlings, a pink butterfly alights on her head. When she turns back to the garden path to her house, the pink butterfly flutters off into the dark woods, arriving at a simple hut where a girl in a white dress with golden embroidery sleeps. The seventh story thus joins the tales into a circle.
Other characters in The Blue Forest include: a red bird whose mellifluous song inspires dreams, a boy who is led by a blue bird to a murky pond where an enormous golden flower blossoms before his eyes, an astrologer who paints stars from his purple tower, a fish family that transports raindrop-jewels to a secret subterranean sea cave, a mother and baby possum who chance on a mysterious emerald-green sanctuary while seeking refuge from a sudden storm.
The tales of The Blue Forest have an innovative and artistic character that explores the genre of bedtime stories in a new way. They were conceived and composed as bedtime stories in the most emphatic sense: their vivid painterly depictions, enigmatic occurrences, and archetypal imagery make the tales resemble the non-discursive and ethereal dreamscape of sleep. The stories enliven the imagination in a way that leads the reader and listener seamlessly from the clear outlines of the waking world into the elusive realm of dreams.
The luminous illustrations by Stephanie Young and Tim Smith beautifully serve the soothing and magical qualities of the stories.

<B>Book of Greek and Roman Folktales, Legends and Myths </B><I> </I>, HANSEN, WILLIAM
10 Book of Greek and Roman Folktales, Legends and Myths
HANSEN, WILLIAM
0691170150 / 9780691170152 
Captured centaurs and satyrs, talking animals, people who suddenly change sex, men who give birth, the temporarily insane and the permanently thick-witted, delicate sensualists, incompetent seers, a woman who remembers too much, a man who cannot laugh--these are just some of the colorful characters who feature in the unforgettable stories that ancient Greeks and Romans told in their daily lives. Together they created an incredibly rich body of popular oral stories that include, but range well beyond, mythology--from heroic legends, fairy tales, and fables to ghost stories, urban legends, and jokes. This unique anthology presents the largest collection of these tales ever assembled. Featuring nearly four hundred stories in authoritative and highly readable translations, this is the first book to offer a representative selection of the entire range of traditional classical storytelling.  

Set mostly in the world of humans, not gods, these stories focus on figures such as lovers, tricksters, philosophers, merchants, rulers, athletes, artists, and soldiers. The narratives range from the well-known--for example, Cupid and Psyche, Diogenes and his lantern, and the tortoise and the hare--to lesser-known tales that deserve wider attention. Entertaining and fascinating, they offer a unique window into the fantasies, anxieties, humor, and passions of the people who told them.  

Complete with beautiful illustrations by Glynnis Fawkes, a comprehensive introduction, notes, and more, this one-of-a-kind anthology will delight general readers as well as students of classics, fairy tales, and folklore.

William Hansen, Professor Emeritus of classical studies and folklore at Indiana University, Bloomington, is one of the world's leading authorities on classical folklore. His books include Classical Mythology: A Guide to the Mythical World of the Greeks and Romans, Ariadne's Thread: A Guide to International Tales Found in Classical Literature, and Anthology of Ancient Greek Popular Literature. He lives in Bloomington.

Scottish Folk Tales For Children
'Stories are something you carry with you, something to last your entire life, to be passed on to your children, and their children for evermore.' Duncan Williamson.

Duncan Williamson came from a family of Travelling People, who told stories around the campfire for entertainment and for teaching. As a child, Duncan learnt the ways of the world through stories: 'My father's knowledge told us how to live in this world as natural human beings -- not to be greedy, not to be foolish, not to be daft or selfish -- by stories.' In this collection, he passes on some of these wonderful children's folk and fairy tales. For over sixty years Duncan travelled around Scotland -- on foot, then in a horse and cart, and later an old van -- collecting tales, which not only come from the Travelling People but from the crofters, farmers and shepherds he met along the way. This collection includes tales about cunning foxes and storytelling cats, hunchbacked ogres and beautiful unicorns, helpful broonies and mysterious fairies, rich kings and fearsome warriors, as well as those about ordinary folk trying to make their way in the world.
The stories have been written down as faithfully as possible to Duncan's unique storytelling voice, full of colour, humour and life.
