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.
