From the Publisher:
The bittersweet saga of the handsome colt that is wrenched from a happy country home and almost worked to death as a London cab horse is adapted for easy reading. Large type, short chapters, and expressive art make this a must for all animal lovers.
Anna Sewell's only book, BLACK BEAUTY, was published in 1877. Since that time, it has become a landmark not only in children's literature, but also in the animal's rights arena. Sewell's work pointed out the cruel way that animals, particularly horses, were treated in the 1800s and resulted in animal protection laws.
