Abstract: Le lumache che vivono nel prato chiamato Paese del Dente di Leone, sotto la frondosa pianta del calicanto, sono abituate a condurre una vita lenta e silenziosa, a nascondersi dallo sguardo avido degli altri animali, e a chiamarsi tra loro semplicemente «lumaca». Una di loro, però, trova ingiusto non avere un nome, e soprattutto è curiosa di scoprire le ragioni della lentezza. Per questo, nonostante la disapprovazione delle compagne, intraprende un viaggio che la porterà a conoscere un gufo malinconico e una saggia tartaruga, a comprendere il valore della memoria e la vera natura del coraggio, e a guidare le compagne in un’avventura ardita verso la libertà. Un nuovo indimenticabile personaggio entra nella galleria del grande scrittore cileno. Un’altra storia memorabile che insegna a riscoprire il senso perduto del tempo.

Abstract: 'All animals are equal - but some are more equal than others'When the downtrodden animals of Manor Farm overthrow their master Mr Jones and take over the farm themselves, they imagine it is the beginning of a life of freedom and equality. But gradually a cunning, ruthless elite among them, masterminded by the pigs Napoleon and Snowball, starts to take control. Soon the other animals discover that they are not all as equal as they thought, and find themselves hopelessly ensnared as one form of tyranny is replaced with another. 'It is the history of a revolution that went wrong - and of the excellent excuses that were forthcoming at every step for the perversion of the original doctrine,' wrote Orwell for the first edition of Animal Farm in 1945. Orwell wrote the novel at the end of 1943, but it almost remained unpublished; its savage attack on Stalin, at that time Britain's ally, led to the book being refused by publisher after publisher. Orwell's simple, tragic fable has since become a world-famous classic.This Penguin Modern classics edition includes an introduction by Malcolm Bradbury.

Abstract: This is a story for people who follow their hearts and make their own rules...people who get special pleasure out of doing something well, even if only for themselves...people who know there's more to this living than meets the eye: they’ll be right there with Jonathan, flying higher and faster than ever they dreamed.

Abstract: Orwell's 1945 fable about the power struggles among animals on a farm parallels the situation in Russia at the time as Orwell saw it; the characters include the ruthless pig Stalin, his idealistic Trotsky-like adversary, and the simple, kindly horse who represents the common man. All animals are equals but some animals are more equal than others. George Orwell's classic satire of the Russian Revolution is the account of the bold struggle, initiated by the animals, that transforms Mr. Jones's Manor Farm into Animal Farm, a wholly democratic society built on the credo that all animals are created equal. Out of their cleverness, the pigs Napoleon, Squealer, and Snowball emerge as leaders of the new community in a subtle evolution that proves disastrous. The climax is the brutal betrayal of the faithful horse Boxer, when totalitarian rule is re-established with the bloodstained postscript to the founding slogan: but some animals are more equal than others. War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.
