Staff Reviews


A haunting adaptation of the classic tale. Raw and illustrated to show the themes clearly and harshly, this was never an easy read, but Odyr gives an eye-opening experience. This graphic novel/illustrated novel is a great way to introduce the story or to support the reading of the novel. Mature images and themes. — Jeanette

Description


A beautiful graphic adaptation of George Orwell’s timeless and timely allegorical novel.

“All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”

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 masterpiece is still fiercely relevant wherever cults of personality thrive, truths are twisted by those in power, and freedom is under attack. In this fully authorized edition, the artist Odyr translates the world and message of Animal Farm into a gorgeously imagined graphic novel.

Old Major, Napoleon, Squealer, Snowball, Boxer, and all the creatures of Animal Farm come to life in this newly envisaged classic. From his individual brushstrokes to the freedom of his page design, Odyr’s adaptation seamlessly moves between satire and fable and will appeal to all ages, just as Orwell intended.
