Black Beauty tells the story of the horse's own long and varied life, from a well-born colt in a pleasant meadow to an elegant carriage horse for a gentleman to a painfully overworked cab horse. Throughout, Sewell rails--in a gentle, 19th-century way--against animal maltreatment. Young readers will follow Black Beauty's fortunes, good and bad, with gentle masters as well as cruel. Children can easily make the leap from horse-human relationships to human-human relationships, and begin to understand how their own consideration of others may be a benefit to all. (Ages 9 to 12)-

The enthralling story of the life of Black Beauty. Beginning as a young colt, through a life filled with the compassion and cruelty of his owners, Black Beauty takes readers on a journey of spirit and opens them to a new experience of feelings.

Black Beauty remains one of the best loved animal stories ever written.
