The author of my book is George Orwell. The book I am reading is entitled

Animal Farm. My book is a fiction book with talking animals. The animals rebel against

Jones and his farm and how their food was low and they had to work to much to just

make food for Jones and his family. The animals were victorious in gaining control of the

farm. Then the pigs slowly take over the farm and slowly turn it back into just what it had

into the food room and started eating the food. Jones and his men came out to fight them

Snowball took over as their new leader and served them good especially when Jones came

back with some men and guns and tried to take back his farm and Snowball took control

and stopped Jones from winning the fight.

Then Snowball gets an idea that they should build a windmill that symbolizes their
