In 1945, George Orwell, called "the conscience of his generation," created an enduring, devastating story of new tyranny replacing old, and power corrupting even the noblest of causes. Today it is all too clear that Orwell's Animal Farm is still fiercely relevant wherever cults of personality thrive, truths are twisted by those in power, and freedom is under attack. Old Major, Napoleon, Squealer, Snowball, Boxer, and all the animals of Animal Farm come to life in this newly envisaged classic. From his individual brushstrokes to the freedom of his page design, Odyr's authorized adaptation seamlessly moves between satire and fable and will appeal to all ages, just as Orwell intended.
"If you had a chance to fix a mistake from your past, would you take it? Alyson Levy would. Guilt weighs heavy on former criminal ""wheelman"" Alyson, who led an illicit life that left her shattered. Enter Casper Quellex, an eccentric businessman who offers her the break of a lifetime: a massive cross-country car race that grants the winner an opportunity to correct a single mistake in their life. But here's the catch--each leg covers a different period in history. Just like that, Alyson and the other drivers find themselves in a gut-wrenching race through time contending with medieval warriors, dinosaurs, and natural disasters where they quickly learn that they must band together to form any chance for survival. But for an opportunity to change history, Alyson will drive from the Big Bang to the death knell of the universe."
