Customer Review

16 February 2018
Reading this book brought me back to when I had to read George Orwell’s “Animal Farm” for school.

In this book by Ian and Max Rudd like “Animal Farm” its animal characters have been given humanistic qualities. And instead of rising up in a rebellion for their existence under their farmer oppressor, the animals in this book are seeking a safe haven away from the encroachment of development into their world.

While Animal Farm had been a satirical novel dealing with the evils of a socialistic state, contaminated ethics, insurgencies which went awry, as well as the social conflict between the various classes; all of which are still quite valid today. The Refugees From Daffodil Cottage deals with the gentrification and overly urbanization of one rural area after another and its effects on the environment and the animals that live there.

The intended communication of the ideas in this book are quite strong when read and yet it has been done in a gentle manner so as not to hit anyone reading this book the head with its lesson. And while the intended audience of this book are between the ages 10–18 [grade 5-12], it’s also a book that adults should consider reading since they’re the ones who can help correct the situation described in the pages of this book.

For wanting to have their readers change their attitudes towards the environment, this reviewer has given this book 5 STARS.
