Some brief overview of book

Anna Sewell said that the aim of her "little book" was "to induce kindness, sympathy and an understanding treatment of horses." Though the book had scant influence when it was first published in 1877, it has since become a classic. Black Beauty tells his own story he was born to caring masters, allowed as a young horse to run free on a well-kept farm. Once away from his home, he is stripped of his name and his dignity, but never of his courage; his good nature and gentleness see him through the difficult life he must endure.

Anna Sewell's expert knowledge and thoughtful compassion for horses have ensured the lasting popularity and impact of this, her only book. Newly commissioned illustrations by Victor Ambrus, an introduction by Naomi Lewis, and a format just the right size for young hands make this the edition of choice for a new generation of readers.

About author

Sewell was born in England in 1820. She spent much of her life as an invalid, better able to drive a horse-drawn carriage than to walk. The last seven years of her life were spent working on Black Beauty, which was published shortly before she died in 1878.

Victor Ambrus was born in Hungary and studied in Budawpest and at the Royal College of Art in London. He has illustrated over three hundred books and has twice won the Kate Greenaway Medal. Naomi Lewis, distinguished scholar and critic, is the principal adviser for the standard reference work Twentieth-Century Children;s Writers.
