A handsome horse with a glossy black coat and a pretty white star on his forehead, Black Beauty seems to lead a charmed life.

Although his mother warns him that there are ‘bad, cruel men’ in the world, he begins his life in a happy home, with a friendly groom to look after him and plenty to eat. However, when a change of circumstances means that he is sold, he soon discovers the truth of his mother’s words. Anna Sewell’s moving story is one of the best-loved animal adventures ever written.
