Review quote

Odyr's 'fully authorized' adaptation ... alchemizes Orwell's period writing into a timeless, immediately terrifying warning about the dangers of abusive power * Booklist * Odyr's expressive watercolour palette strikes a visceral note that matches the intensity of Orwell's original text ... He skillfully evokes the mood of the countryside and the plot's shocking violence; the atmosphere and emotions are spot-on * Publisher's Weekly * Odyr's rich brushstrokes do much to enhance the experience of Orwell's brand of satire * New York Journal of Books * This brightly coloured homage to George Orwell's timely allegory is heartbreaking and elegant. Odyr's images of animals casting off their bonds and then living with the results of their revolution are painterly and evocative, both loose and illuminating. * The New York Times *

About George Orwell

Eric Arthur Blair (1903-1950), better known by his pen-name, George Orwell, was born in India, where his father worked for the Civil Service. An author and journalist, Orwell was one of the most prominent and influential figures in twentieth-century literature. His unique political allegory Animal Farm was published in 1945, and it was this novel, together with the dystopia of Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949), which brought him world-wide fame. His novels and non-fiction include Burmese Days, Down and Out in Paris and London, The Road to Wigan Pier and Homage to Catalonia.

Odyr was born in 1967 in Brazil. He is a comics artist and painter, whose books include Copacabana and Guadalupe. His work has been included in several anthologies and his short stories and illustrations have been published in many Brazilian magazines and newspapers.
