The Autobiography of A Horse
Random House, Inc.
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.

SummaryAdd a Summary
summary great rea i strongly advise you to read this because its just amazing i tellyou !
"McKinley has managed to retain Beauty's unique voice. This version brings back the sharpened cruelty towards Beauty and his companions, and McKinley has rightfully retained the pain and the sadness of some of the incidents. Children will still weep at the death of Ginger, and Jeffer's portrayal of the fire is quite frightening." (Novelist Review)
