LoveReading View on Black Beauty

A truly timeless adventure of a horse with an unbreakable spirit and a bond that eventually goes almost full circle. Animal lovers will love the story of Black Beauty even though the tears will be almost as frequent as the smiles. An essential read. This is the paperback edition but if you’re looking for a gift purchase then look no further than the Everyman’s Library edition. We also rate very highly a new edition from Oxford Children’s Books.

Black Beauty Synopsis

Black Beauty is a marvellous animal, he lives a long, varied life and has many different owners who put him to all sorts of tasks, from being a riding and carriage horse on a country estate to a cab horse in town. His strength, sweet temper and fine instincts stay with him throughout his life.
