Linda Newbery is a Costa Award-winning author for her novel Set in Stone, a mystery in the Vein of Wilkie Collins The Woman in White. She is highly regarded for her fiction for both junior and teenage readers.
Now Linda has written her first non-fiction book, This Book is Cruelty-Free: Animals and Us. Linda's first novel was concerned with animal rights and hunting. She has long been a campaigner for animal welfare organisations, she is a passionate supporter of Compassion in World Farming, the League Against Cruel Sports and PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). She now presents convincing arguments that humans must show greater compassion for animals, both for ethical reasons but also for the benefit of human society.
