The Polity of Beasts

The press release for The Polity of Beasts, a novel by Renald Iacovelli, describes the premise thus:

When the animals in a certain forest decide to institute among themselves a democratic government in the hope of improving their lives, they soon find themselves worse off than ever as the pandering animals who have been elected to office begin indulging their greed and lust for power.

George Orwell did a pretty god job with the whole political animal concept so I doubt that any high schoolers will ever have to plow through The Polity of Beasts.

Found in a newspaper dispenser on Broadway.
