Black Beauty

Black Beauty is a handsome, sweet-tempered colt with a strong spirit. As a young colt he is free to gallop in the fresh green meadows with his beloved mother, Duchess, and their kind master. But when his owners are forced to sell him, Black Beauty goes from a life of comfort and kindness to one of hard labour and cruelty. Bravely he works as hard as he can, suffering at the hands of men who treat him badly. But Black Beauty has an unbreakable spirit and will, and is determined to survive… This much-loved classic tale of a horse’s life in Victorian London is now introduced by Carnegie-winning author Meg Rosof.

    this book is all about the many lives of one horse, passed from owner to owner. Black Beauty was written a long time ago, and in an old-fashioned language but the story itself is beautiful. I would recommend this to readers who love animals, and are strong readers, as the words are sometimes tricky to understand. A brilliant book through and through.
