A horse could be a horse of course unless obviously the horse is Black Beauty. Although Anna Sewell's classic paints a clear picture of turn-of-the-century London, its message is universal and timeless: animals will serve humans well if they are treated with consideration and kindness. Animal-loving children happen to be devoted to Black Beauty all through this century, and no doubt will continue by means of the next.
Black Beauty tells the story inside the horse's personal long and varied life, from a well-born colt inside a pleasant meadow to an elegant carriage horse for a gentleman to a painfully overworked cab horse. (Ages 9 to 12) Young readers will follow Black Beauty's fortunes, great and bad, with gentle masters at the same time as cruel. Children can easily make the leap from horse-human relationships to human-human relationships, and begin to understand how their very personal consideration of other people might be a benefit to all. Throughout, Sewell rails--in a gentle, 19th-century way--against animal maltreatment.
