Publisher's Summary

When Black Beauty is just a foal, his mother tells him to be gentle and good, hard-working and obedient to his humans always. Beauty's first job, as carriage horse to Squire Gordon, rewards his good behavior. But when the Gordons fall on hard times, Beauty is sold to an estate whose mistress insists on the bearing rein, a device that forces a horse's head into an uncomfortable but chic position. After scarring his knees in a fall, Beauty is sold once again, to a hard life in a livery stable. Beauty will go through several more owners, both kind and cruel, before he finds his happy ending in the countryside.
Anna Sewell's novel has become a cherished tale of love and loyalty for all ages.

Childhood Favorite Revisited

I loved rediscovering books that I loved as a child. I'm always worried that they won't stand up to my memory. This book was just as excellent revisited as it was when I was a child. I grew up around horses and love them so much, so a book from a perspective of a horse is right up my alley. The fact that it is amazingly well written means it stands the test of time and can span all ages. The narrator did such an excellent job of bringing the story to life. I couldn't be happier.
