Lord of the Flies Explained in GIFs

By: Jennifer Campos and Jennifer Andrade 

We read Lord of the Flies by William Golding in 9th grade and found it surprisingly interesting. Therefore, we decided to share it in a creative way through GIFs (Graphics Interchange Format). Basically: moving pictures.

The story begins with a group of young boys whose plane crashes on a deserted island.
