Animal Farm by George Orwell is a political satire inspired by the Russian Revolution and focuses on important topics like dictatorship and communism. We hear the story from the animals’ perspective who live on a farm where they have taken control after overthrowing their human “owners.” We tend to see the change of power from humans to the animals and then see how power changes hands from one person and animal to another. The animals take control of the farm, and two of the pigs, Snowball and Napoleon, help the farm animals in different ways through their debates and new ideas. Then, Snowball is pushed out of the farm… Who did it, and what will happen next? Read this fascinating and captivating story to find out what happens to the farm and its animals after that. I recommend this book for both tweens and teens.
