Black Beauty by Anna Sewell

Black Beauty by Anna Sewell

"It was written in the 19th  century, before caring about the ethical treatment of animals was  fashionable – Sewell, disabled and reliant on horse-drawn transport – was well ahead of her time.

Her message, though, is still powerful, and no matter how many times you’ve read Black Beauty, you’re likely to feel emotional as the eponymous hero endures hardships at the hands of cruel owners."

About the book:

A brave and handsome horse meets with many adventures and all types of people. But no matter what he encounters, nothing can break Black Beauty's spirit.

‘You saved your mistress's life, Beauty! Yes, you saved her life.’

Black Beauty is the prettiest young horse in the meadows, and spends many happy days under the apple trees with his friends Ginger and Merrylegs. But this easy life comes to an end when Beauty is sold and goes from a farm to an inn to a cabhorse in London, enduring rough treatment from foolish and careless masters. Beauty remains faithful, hardworking and full of spirit despite his trials, and through him we learn that all horses and humans alike deserve to be treated with kindness.
