Black Beauty is a handsome, sweet-tempered colt with a strong spirit. As a young colt he is free to gallop in the fresh green meadows with his beloved mother, Duchess, and their kind master. But when his owners are forced to sell him, Black Beauty goes from a life of comfort and kindness to one of hard labour and cruelty. Bravely he works as hard as he can, suffering at the hands of men who treat animals badly. But Black Beauty has an unbreakable spirit and will, and is determined to survive . . .

Teaches empathy to animals but hasn't aged well


Language used not always current and some explaining needed to children but a good read all the same.



overall good


Good old clasic book enjoyed by young and old. Bought this for my son 11 years and he realy like this book. For children who likes reading this book is for them. The print is just a bit small.
