Animal Farm Essay
The name of the book is Animal Farm, which is written by George
Orwell. This book is about a farm with animals who dislike the treatment, and

When all the animals helped kick Mr. Jones off the farm, Snowball led
the animals to the store-shed and served out a double ration of corn to

would supply electricity so they would not have to work as hard. Napoleon
was against this because he didn't come up with the idea. When Napoleon
sees that Snowball is gaining more power with the speech of the windmill,
Napoleon sends his dogs to chase Snowball out of the farm. After Snowball
was chased out of the farm,
