black beauty  

Anna Sewell 
The adventures, disappointments and joys of a very special horse.

Black Beauty is a handsome, well-bred colt with a strong spirit. But when his owners are forced to sell him, his fortunes change from a life of comfort and kindness to one of hard labour and cruelty. Black Beauty soon learns how unpredictable life can be with man as his master.

Thoughts: Black Beauty is one of my all time favourite books. There is no way the Pony Pals or Saddle Club can beat this book. Yes it may be stupid reading a book based on a horses thoughts but it is the most beautifully written book you'll ever find. It's great because it's got children's version too where it's cut down and simple for a kid to read. The cover of the book often varies though because it has many versions of covers. But overall a lovely book.This is my little piece of magic.
