Animal Farm tells the story of a rebellion and how it goes wrong. The animals’ lives on the farm are terrible – there is not enough food, the work is hard, and animals are dying. One day, the animals kick out the farmer and start to run the farm. Soon, a group of animals – the pigs – becomes more and more important, but things are not better for most of the animals. Life for them is the same as before.
