bookshelves: childrens, gag

I'm not sure what this book was trying to be. As the title suggests it is somehow related to George Orwell's Animal Farm but it's not a retelling for children. I get the feeling that the author was trying for an extension of the story but that seems to be an odd choice considering most children would have no familiarity with the original story. The characters are different from the original and the whole allegory thing is kind of lost. So I just don't see the point here.

I wasn't a huge fan of the illustrations either. They are bright and colorful but really busy and I found them distracting. Rather than help me puzzle together what this book was supposed to be, they left me all the more confused.
