David Robinson Simon, author of Meatonomics
"With colorful characters and an enthralling story, Persimmon Takes On Humanity is not only enjoyable to read, but it might just change your view of humankind, and of the world that we have created."
Mark Devries, director of Speciesism: The Movie
"The story of Persimmon, a raccoon on a mission, is at times magical and at times a searing view of the abuses animals endure, told from their own perspective. I’ll never look at animals the same way after reading Christopher Locke’s poignant portrayal."
