Black Beauty is an 1877 novel by English author Anna Sewell. It was composed in the last years of her life, during which she remained in her house as an invalid.] The novel became an immediate bestseller, with Sewell dying just five months after its publication, long enough to see her first and only novel become a success. With fifty million copies sold, Black Beauty is one of the best-selling books of all time. While forthrightly teaching animal welfare, it also teaches how to treat people with kindness, sympathy and respect. Black Beauty became a forerunner to the pony book genre of children's literature.

The story is narrated in the first person as an autobiographical memoir told by a horse named Black Beauty—beginning with his carefree days as a colt on an English farm with his mother, to his difficult life pulling cabs in London, to his happy retirement in the country. Along the way, he meets with many hardships and recounts many tales of cruelty and kindness. Each short chapter recounts an incident in Black Beauty's life containing a lesson or moral typically related to the kindness, sympathy, and understanding treatment of horses.

A Popular Classic

I really liked the way Black Beauty is written from the horse's perspective. It makes all of his experiences and feelings so easy to empathise with. It is a desperately powerful book for children so be warned that any sensitive youngsters could be quite distressed by some of the upsetting chapters in Black Beauty's life. I was 10 the first time I read this and remember finding some parts quite harrowing and difficult to process. It really does teach important lessons about compassion, friendship and loyalty which is always important for children to learn. There are some stories everyone should know about, from Romeo and Juliet, Jane Eyre and To Kill a Mockingbird, to The BFG and Harry Potter. Black Beauty is one of those; it is iconic and I can't imagine it ever losing popularity.
