Max Pfeiffer-Frederick Pre-AP English 1 March 19, 2016 Outside Reading Card – Animal Farm by George Orwell MLA Citation: Orwell, George. Animal Farm (Penguin Modern Classics).

Napoleon is willing to do anything to succeed while Snowball shows signs of morals. Napoleon steals the windmill idea and tries to kill Snowball. Snowball escapes and never returns which tells me he was a very smart and knew he would not win and survive against Napoleon and his army of dogs. 5. Setting is a working farm.
