BLACK BEAUTY - Young Folks Edition

BLACK BEAUTY - Young Folks Edition by Anna Sewell
By: (1820-1878)

The same beloved story of the adventures and misadventures and of a young horse that we all know and love, but rewritten by the author for young people with much shorter chapters. All of the pathos, tenderness and fun are still there, just written for a younger audience. While forthrightly teaching animal welfare, it also teaches how to treat people with kindness, sympathy, and respect.
