Probably the most popular horse story of all time, Black Beauty tells the story of one horse's long and varied life. On the one hand, a fully engaging novel and on the other hand, a strong statement against animal maltreatment.

This is our family book! When our son was 10 years old, we all sat down to watch the movie version - well, it was great, but as you know very sad - we cried through a lot of it, awaiting a happy ending. To this day, when we all want to get together as a family we say, "let's watch the movie Black Beauty" and we all burst out laughing with great exclamations of "NO!"...knowing how difficult it was to get thru that movie, it evoked such sadness, too difficult to ever do again!
