Black Beauty

Written by Anna Sewell

Black Beauty Synopsis

Anna Sewell said that the aim of her "e;little book"e; was "e;to induce kindness, sympathy and an understanding treatment of horses."e; Though the book had scant influence when it was first published in 1877, it has since become a classic.Black Beauty tells his own story: he was born to caring masters, allowed as a young horse to run free on a well-kept farm. Once away from his home, he is stripped of his name and his dignity, but never of his courage; his good nature and gentleness see him through the difficult life he must endure.Anna Sewell's expert knowledge and thoughtful compassion for horses have ensured the lasting popularity and impact of this, her only book.Newly commissioned illustrations by Victor Ambrus, an introduction by Naomi Lewis, and a format just the right size for young hands make this the edition of choice for a new generation of readers.
