Black Beauty is a bestselling Puffin Classic by Anna Sewell.

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 animals badly. But Black Beauty has an unbreakable spirit and will, and is determined to survive . . .

Includes an introduction by award-winning author Meg Rosoff.

Anna Sewell (1820-78) was born in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk. Black Beauty, her only book, was completed and published in 1877, just a few months before she died, so she did not live to know of the book's huge success. Apart from being a good story, Black Beauty was instrumental in changing people's attitudes towards horses, and domestic animals in general.

The book includes a behind-the-scenes journey, including an author profile, a guide to who's who, activities and more..

“A fabulous classic”

Its a fabulous classic, one of the few books I can read over and over again.
A book that I read as a child, and now reading it again as an adult just as inspiring.

“A delightful read”

Evidently I seem to have read this before, despite thinking that I hadn't but there we go. Having re-read it, I found that I did enjoy it more (or at least remember how much I enjoyed it) as it reminds me of all... More
