Fables Vol. 2: Animal Farm
ISBN:
NLBsearchplus

The title is more literal than one thinks. Brilliant.

Not only does the title allude to George Orwell’s work of the same title, but it is also literally a farm containing all the Fables who cannot transform themselves to human form.

Basically the farm residents are in revolt. What is interesting are the revelation of the characters behind it. For instance, the Three Little Pigs aren’t as innocent as we think, and Goldilocks is a heck of a lot more conniving than the simpleminded girl that generations are used to.

Sub-plot: Snow (White) and Red (riding hood) reveal and address their feud.

Another brilliant one in the Fables series.
