Puffin Classics: the definitive collection of timeless stories, for every child

Yes,' she said, 'he is really quite a beauty, and he has such a sweet good-tempered face and such a fine intelligent eye - what do you say to calling him Black Beauty?

Black Beauty is a handsome, sweet-tempered but strong-spirited young horse, used to galloping free 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. He bravely works as hard as he can, enduring hardships and fostering loyal friendships along the way.

Charming and timeless, Black Beauty is an uplifting story of strength, survival and empathy in the face of adversity. The original horse story that inspired a thousand pony books, Black Beauty sparked a new wave of animal cruelty awareness and remains a must-read for any animal lover!

This edition includes an introduction by award-winning author Meg Rosoff, a behind-the-scenes journey, 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
