15 moving books about animals to keep you on the Veganuary wagon

After the bountiful excesses of December, January has become for many a month for deprivation – and this year, Veganuary has gripped us in a benign chokehold of avocado, chickpeas and avid label-reading. Thousands of people across the UK have set aside burgers and haloumi for a month, out of empathy, guilt, or the desire to make a change.

It’s not easy. Not when it’s cold out, and when hearty stews and pies and fistfuls of roast lamb are calling your name.

So here are some books about cuddly, conniving and convivial animals to keep your vegetable-consumption goals firmly rooted until February 1.
