Black Beauty (Paperback)
About the Author
ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Anna Sewell was an invalid who was dependent on horse-powered transport, and this gave her an intense appreciation for the horses and their plight. "Black Beauty" was largely born out of this concern, and became an effective treatise to improve working conditions for transport animals. Especially charming is the fact that the story is told from Beauty's point of view, a literary technique which was groundbreaking at the time. ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATOR - Bren is blessed to share her life with her awesome husband, Shon. Together they manage a children's camp in Carroll County, Maryland. They both work for Carroll County Public Library to support themselves, then return home to work at camp and make books and art. Bren also illustrated the captivating DragonTree series, with more installments to come from Old Line Publishing. She holds a Bachelor's Degree in Visual Communication/Photography from Towson University, and worked in the graphics field for eighteen years. Black Beauty is her fourth published illustrated book.
