Black Beauty (Paperback)
Black Beauty is a novel by the English author Anna Sewell. Many editions of this novel were published since it first appeared in 1877. Although not originally intended as a children's novel, but for people who work with horses, it soon became a children's classic. With 50 million copies sold, Black Beauty is one of the best-selling books of all time. While outwardly teaching animal welfare, it also contains allegorical lessons about how to treat people with kindness, sympathy and respect. The story is narrated in the first person as an autobiographical memoir told by a horse named Black Beauty. Along the way, he meets with many hardships and recounts many tales of cruelty and kindness. Each short chapter recounts an incident in Black Beauty's life containing a lesson or moral typically related to the kindness, sympathy, and understanding treatment of horses. It is a pleasure to publish this new, high quality, and affordable edition. This edition is based on the Young Folk's Edition.
