When Black Beauty is trained to carry a rider on his back, or to pull a carriage behind him, he finds it hard at first. But he is lucky - his first home is a good one, where his owners are kind people, who would never be cruel to a horse. But in the nineteenth century many people were cruel to their horses, whipping them and beating them, and using them like machines until they dropped dead. Black Beauty soon finds this out, and as he describes his life, he has many terrible stories to tell.

About the Author:


Anna Sewell (1820-78) felt very strongly about cruelty to animals and wrote Black Beauty to persuade people to be kinder to horses. It was her only book and took her six years to write because of illness. She died soon after it appeared, and since then more than thirty million copies have been sold.
