Favourite moment, incident or chapter (with page references):
My favourite moment is when Napoleon is false accusing four pigs of treachery and without any regret he orders to kill the four pigs. Then three hens say that Snowball appeared to them in a dream and he ordered them to disobey Napoleon’s orders.
They also were slaughtered. Some more animals confess to Napoleon, that they steel or did something else what wasn’t allowed to do, according to Napoleon’s laws. This al happens on the pages 68 and 69.
