About the Author
Anna Sewell was born in 1820 into a Quaker family whose respect for horses was out of step with the common view of the time, that animals should be worked until they dropped. Disabled in a fall at age fourteen, she lived all her life with her parents but became an expert carriage driver and, as editor and stern critic, helped her mother, Mary Wright Sewell, become a successful author of evangelical childrens books. She wrote Black Beauty, her only book, in the last years of her life, as a plea for more humane treatment of horses. She died in 1878, a year after the novel was published to wide acclaim.

Animal lovers of all ages will cherish this memorable story, now available in this unabridged, modestly priced edition.
But when it came in the mail, it was a skinny little paperback and on the back cover it states it's an abridged version. This is false advertising! So unhappy and will be a lot more careful from now on when buying books like this online!
I purchased this book as a reward for my daughter (10) and she listens to it several times a week. Sometimes we even sit and listen together. What better way to re-experience such a wonderful classic then cuddled up with your child. I am very glad that I choose this particular version and can recommend it strongly.
