Item description for Black Beauty (Classic Literature With Classical Music. Junior Classics) by Anna Sewell...

Outline 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 way--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)"

Product Description
First published in 1877, this acclaimed children's book tells the story of a friendly, patient stallion who starts to accept the rule of his masters in the saddle after the carefree years in the fields, until a succession of misfortunes befall her.

More About Anna Sewell

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Anna Sewell was born in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England, on March 30, 1820. Brought up in a strict Quaker family, Anna developed a strong interest in horses as a young girl. But a crippling bone disease and a fall in 1834 left her an invalid for most of her life. By her mid-thirties she was severely lame and could only get around in a pony cart, and characteristically she would never use a whip on the animal. In 1871, she was told she had eighteen months to live, and by the end of that year, she had begun her book, Black Beauty, hoping it might make people a little kinder to their faithful horses. Although she was seriously ill, she lived long enough to finish her book and see it published in 1877. On April 25, 1878, she died at her home in Old Catton near Norwich, England. Black Beauty, an enormous success from its first appearance, was soon adopted by the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and used to improve the conditions of horses everywhere.

Anna Sewell lived in Yarmouth. Anna Sewell was born in 1820 and died in 1878.

Truly Classical!!  Feb 3, 2008
I waited my entire life to finally sit down and read "Black Beauty". What a GREAT book!!! This is one I will be keeping!
Black Beauty, uncut in Hardback  Jan 16, 2008
This was a fun addition to my library as it was a childhood favorite. This was a lovely edition, beautifully printed and bound. The seller packed to be sure it arrived in the same great shape it was in when it was sold too. I am very pleased with the book and the seller.
Entertaining  Oct 23, 2007
Not up to par with the Disney classics, of course, but entertaining enough and of decent quality. Good for students learning Spanish.
My 3 y.o has watched it several times even though he's not into horses, so I guess he likes it well enough.
I would say that girls would like it better.
A timeless story  Sep 27, 2007
Black Beauty is the story of a horse and possibly one of the best-loved animal stories of all time, except for perhaps Old Yeller. This novel will inspire young readers to be kind and compassionate to animals. It will teach young readers to treat everyone with kidness and respect.
