Black Beauty

This is the first in a series of posts about children's classic books available for borrowing from our school library.

Black Beauty by Anna Sewell is the compelling tale of a spirited young Thoroughbred that captured the hearts of readers throughout Victorian England when it was first published in 1877. Black Beauty grows up in the fields and horse meadows of Victorian England but when the young black colt is sold, he has no idea of the hardships he is about to face. Read his story in his own words as he tells of his life in nineteenth-century England, his treatment under many different masters, both good and bad, and as he faces and overcomes danger, mistreatment and cruelty in a world that cares little for the happiness of animals.

We have two copies of Black Beauty in the library, one in Fiction and one in Senior Fiction.
