Product Description

The inhumane treatment of animals stems from a low view of God and His creation. We are caretakers of nature, animals included, and when we treat nature disrespectfully we are betraying our mandate. Into this system comes the story of Black Beauty, a paragon of horses, but seen as so much chattel among his caretakers. Dealing with deep subjects such as innate morality and stewardship, this book popularized talking animal stories while addressing the problem of human cruelty. Black Beauty is a world classic that has grown from a simple protest of a harmful restraining device then in use to a timeless call for the proper treatment of animals and humans, as well as a reverence for God. Recommended for ages 8 and up.

Publisher's Description

The Graphic Novelization of a Classic Tale!

A handsome and sweet-tempered horse, Black Beauty is strong and spirited. His mother warns him that there are bad, cruel men in the world, but Black Beauty sees none of it in his fine, happy home. Until the day when he is sold, when his life changes immeasurably and he finally sees the truth in his mother's words. As he moves from master to master, Beauty's adventures will captivate readers, and June Brigman's wonderful illustrations will capture their imaginations.

Author Bio

Anna Sewell was born in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England, on March 30, 1820. Brought up in a strict Quaker family, Anna developed a strong interest in horses as a young girl. But a crippling bone disease and a fall in 1834 left her an invalid for most of her life. By her mid-thirties she was severely lame and could only get around in a pony cart, and characteristically she would never use a whip on the animal. In 1871, she was told she had eighteen months to live, and by the end of that year, she had begun her book, Black Beauty, hoping it might make people a little kinder to their faithful horses. Although she was seriously ill, she lived long enough to finish her book and see it published in 1877. On April 25, 1878, she died at her home in Old Catton near Norwich, England. Black Beauty, an enormous success from its first appearance, was soon adopted by the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and used to improve the conditions of horses everywhere.
