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.
