Fables Vol. 2: Animal Farm

Ever since they were driven from their homelands by the Adversary, the non-human Fables have been living on the Farm—a vast property in upstate New York that keeps them hidden from the prying eyes of the mundane world. But now, after hundreds of years of isolation, the Farm is seething with revolution, fanned by the inflammatory rhetoric of Goldilocks and the Three Little Pigs. And when Snow White and her sister Rose Red stumble upon their plan to liberate the Homelands, the commissars of the Farm are ready to silence them—by any means necessary!

This is the second volume of Fables and the story focuses on 'The Farm' a place where non-human fables reside in order to keep Fabletown secret from the 'mundys'.

 I loved seeing the farm and I really liked the revolutionary story arc, I felt sorry for the fables stuck there as they could not leave. I don't understand why they all can't get glamours so they can live alongside the 'mundys' - I mean surely the witches could be made to do them for free by the Fabletown government?

Hopefully as I read on in the series, I will understand it a bit better. Such as how the government is run and how fables manage to fit into society at large.

Its not rated 5 stars because there is no art by Lan Medina. Boo.
