Hello friends! Finally, I am presenting my first ever author interview on the blog. Believe me, it was long overdue. Actually, I took this interview last year right after I finished reading The Crowns of Croswald 😛 Those of you who don’t know about this book, I would like to tell you that it was totally magical and was actually one of my favourite reads of 2017. If you are a fan of Harry Potter, then you NEED to read it.
Do you guys read middle grade or children’s books? Do you enjoy them? I certainly do. So when the author asked me to review his debut book, I couldn’t refuse it because of first thing, look at the cover! And it is fantasy, so who could refuse? Because, children + fantasy = Best combination!
When I won this book in a giveaway on Instagram, I was like super excited. I didn’t know what was this book about exactly. I just saw this book doing rounds on Instagram. So I was excited to get my hands on it. When it arrived, I instantly decided that it is going to be my next read, and alas! Here we are. I have never been so happy after reading a book that I got in a giveaway. This book was absolutely magical!

Obviously I didn’t knew beforehand about manga so I had some trouble reading it at first. But after some research, I was on track, and oh boy it was exactly as the movie (minus songs and detailed graphics). Yes, this is an adaptation of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast movie which was released recently starring Emma Watson.
Before starting this book, I knew that it is about Russian revolution, about which I know nothing. But, I didn’t even tried to know about it and was just relied on the book itself. I believed that being a classic and of a different era, it will be difficult to read and understand, but to my contrary believe, it was funny, entertaining and a perfect satire. I really enjoyed the overall journey of Manor Farm becoming the Animal Farm and then converting back to the Manor Farm. The story is about a farm where all the animals took over the farm by pushing out the farm’s owner……
