Told through the eyes of a handsome young foal named Black Beauty, this classic novel is a story of kindness, strength, and unbreakable spirit.

Good-natured and carefree, Black Beauty has a luxurious childhood surrounded by his mother, their kind owner, and the rolling hills of the Victorian English countryside. But when the foal's master is forced to sell him, his comfortable life becomes one of hard labour. He endures cruel treatment and terrible suffering, yet no matter how much the young foal wishes to give up, he remains hopeful and determined that better days are ahead.

Written while Anna Sewell was on her deathbed, Black Beauty was first published in 1911, just five months before the author's death. The bestselling novel had great influence in improving animal welfare in nineteenth-century England due to its unblinking portrayal of the cruel and inhumane treatment of animals at the time. Teaching its reader how to treat others with kindness and respect, this charming book is perfect for young minds.
