When Black Beauty is trained to carry a rider on his back, or to pull a carriage behind him, he finds it hard at first. But he is lucky - his first home is a good one, where his owners are kind people, who would never be cruel to a horse. But in the 19th century many people were cruel to their horses, whipping them and beating them, and using them like machines until they dropped dead. Black Beauty soon finds this out, and as he describes his life, he has many terrible stories to tell.

An Oxford Bookworms Library reader for learners of English, adapted from the Anna Sewell original by John Escott.

    " Great abridged version for young readers. Gives background reference for the different coaches, veterinarian care, and such for that time period. "

    " I rate this as for kids simply because it is written that way, but there are concepts and themes that an adult will want to be present to explain. Overall, I wasn't impressed by the adaptation though it was interesting that the POV is from Beauty himself. "
