Black Beauty is a colt who narrates his own life story, from his youth on English farms to his days pulling cabs in the streets of London and his eventual retirement to the countryside. Over the years, he is sold to a variety of different owners, some kind and others less so. His life is a constant illustration of the ways that people—and people and animals—interact with each other. This exquisite edition features the delightful full-color plates and line drawings of Lucy Kemp-Welch.

This is one of many Leatherbound Classics that I have purchased and it like the others does not disappoint. Beautiful leather cover makes this classic tale even more appealing.

Loved this book! Heartbreaking but wonderful at the same time. It's a lovely/horrid story about Black Beauty and his many owners. Some nice, some horrible. I've always loved the movie and it did the book justice, in my eyes.It has become one of my favorite books and I am so glad I got it!

In my previous review, I incorrectly said this was part of the "Picture Perfect" series. There is no such thing. It's the Page Perfect series. Each page, complete with margin designs and original illustrations, is shown in its entirety on the screen of your Tablet. It's as if you are reading the original edition, done in a time when books were considered works of art. In my previous review. I complained because the print was so small and there is no way to change the font except by pinching and spreading your fingers or reading it in Landscape mode, wondering if a child would do this. First, I found it very comfortable reading in Landscape. Second, children don't find the print as small as these old eyes do. My granddaughter has no problem reading these beautiful books. H ighly recommended

I have never really been interested in horses, but I am interested in old children's books - So I decided to try out this classic! The book comes in a compact, nice blue design - Not too ''childish'' as this book wasn't originally supposed to be a children's book. The story follows the horse Black Beauty throughout his whole life, from young to old. Each part of the book is basically his time with each owner. There are good times, and there are bad times. And each chapter has a lesson about kindness, animal welfare and so on. I would say that this book is more suitable for older readers than children, since it can be a little too complicated for a child. Though I would very much recommend this to young horse lovers! You really feel with Black Beauty and realize that animals have feelings too! This book is really a good read that is not too heavy, and you can share the experience with your children as well.
