About the Author

Anna Sewell was born in 1820 in Norfolk, England. Black Beauty: The Autobiography of a Horse was published in 1877 after 6 years of writing. It was her only novel. Sickly her entire adult life, Sewell died just 5 months later.

Praise for Black Beauty:

"One of the greatest books ever narrated by a horse, with a fine message: be kind to animals, and they'll be kind to you." - Michael Morpurgo, Guardian

"One of the most enchanting and best-loved children's stories of all time." - Mail on Sunday

"This was the first book that reduced me to tears - I saw what it meant to campaign ardently and successfully for an important cause." - Esther Rantzen, Daily Mail
