Read-It Wednesday: Animal Farm

Animal Farm - 1st edition.jpg

George Orwell’s book Animal Farm is anything but a children’s book. In this book, we follow a big Old Major as he summons the other animals to chase out their abusive owner. Once he is gone they have a sense of freedom, that is until Major dies leaving Napoleon and Snowball in charge. However, Snowball is chased out by Napoleon with him declaring himself as leader. Soon, all of the other animals find themselves under the complete power of Napoleon. In a totalitarian state, the farm animals find themselves being no different than the abusive farmer they had before.
