Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Whether he's working as a carriage horse on a grand country estate, or being ridden through the night on a lifesaving mission, Black Beauty's loyalty and sweet nature never fail. First published in 1877, Black Beauty has captured the hearts of readers for more than a century.

Synopsis:

"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 mistreatment. Illustrations.

About the Author

Anna Sewell (1820-78) was born in Norfolk, England. Disabled through illness, she grew to rely on a horse and carriage for mobility. Black Beauty was inspired by her experiences, and remains one of the world's favorite animal stories.
 
Ian Andrew is a graduate of the Royal College of Art. He has illustrated numerous books for children and adults and has a gift for bringing animal characters to life.
