This Scholastic Classics edition of George Orwell’s classic satire novel is perfect for students and Orwell enthusiasts alike.
All animals are equal – but some are more equal than others.
When the ill-treated animals of Manor Farm rebel against their master Mr Jones and take over the farm, they start to believe in a life of freedom and equality for all. But slowly, the egocentric and ruthless Napoleon takes control and the animals are subjected to force and violence from the corrupt elite – the pigs. As one dictator is replaced with another, the idea of fairness and equality for all becomes a distant memory.
Class, equality, power and control are some of the themes that run throughout this novel.
