Beware Snowball!

In a more useful review sense, this is the perfect book to introduce young readers to the idea of allegory as a writing method. Its use of talking animals to explore the ideas behind something as complex as Communism/Socialism at work was ingenious. The book's length (quite short) also makes it a great title to re-read.
