Set in Victorian London, the book follows the shifting fortunes of a horse as he moves from owner to owner. Narrated by noble Black Beauty himself, the tale offers an animal's perspective of the world, & highlights the thoughtless treatment animals endured at that time. Illustrations created by Scott McKowen in scratchboard. Ages 9+.

Product Description:

A horse in nineteenth-century England recounts his experiences with both good and bad masters.

Review:

A horse is a horse of course, unless of course the horse is Black Beauty. Animal-loving children have been devoted to Black Beauty throughout this century, and no doubt will continue through the next. Although Anna Sewell's classic paints a clear picture of turn-of-the-century London, its message is universal and timeless: animals will serve humans well if they are treated with consideration and kindness.

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 manner--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)
