    Loved this story as a kid. I know my grandchildren will too!

    This is one of many Leatherbound Classics that I have purchased and it like the others does not disappoint. Beautiful leather cover makes this classic tale even more appealing.

    I absolutely love Black Beauty!! The funny thing is, is that i actually have a horse that looks just like Black Beauty. When the movie came out, i compared my horse when he was two years old to Beauty when he was two years old and they looked exactly the same!!! Same white on the same foot and star on his nose. So i named my horse Black Beauty because of how great the book and movie are!!!!! sometimes i watch the movie in my stables with my horse so he can see what he looks like. Enough about me, but the book is tromendous. It actually includes conversations inbetween the horses. Even though the movie doesnt, its just as good so READ IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Btw im 12 so i bet this book is good for people my age. Posted on August 12, 2013

    The best book of an all time favorite horse of love

    I like horses and the color black and Black Beauty is my favorite book and one of the best novels by Anna Sewell. He is a beautiful black animal with a white star on his forehead and one white foot and in the novel of Black Beauty, Black Beauty's white foot was usually always on the back in the left and another second best of Black Beauty's white foot was on the front in the right and that's where I like to see Black Beauty's white foot and it's perfect for the best on the front in the right, and the two hind legs on the left and the right and that's how you like Black Beauty and the best choices. My favorite character in this book is Joe Green, because at the end of Black Beauty, Joe becomes a man and one lucky day, he finds that horse he used to care for and gets excited when he said he had almost killed him so many nearly ten years ago at Squire Gordon's farm after coming back from the Doctor's. This is the best one illustrated by Scott McKowen because there is five black and white illustrations in this book of Black Beauty as a colt with his mother Duchess, Rob Roy or a differnt horse either on a hunt or Lady Anne on Black Beauty, Black Beauty getting shoes for the first time, A kind man leads Black Beauty to his new home and Black Beauty as a cab horse and if there were some other 16 illustrations of 12 black and white illustrations and 4 color illustrations in this book, that would make it the best but, there would be like some of the Full Page Illustrations are: One of the riders was getting out of the water, covered with mud the other lay quite still John rode me first slowly, then a trot, then a canter ¿The children did not know when they had enough, so I just pitched them off backwards¿ An oak fell right across the road just before us Safe in the yard, he slipped the scarf off my eyes and shouted, ¿Here, somebody! take this horse while I go back for the other¿ Going for the doctor The carter was shouting and flogging the horses unmercifully With scarcely a pause Lizzie took the leap, stumbled among the rough clouds, and fell I uttered no sound, but just stood there and listened Ginger and I neighed to each other as I was led off by Robert The farrier examined my feet one by one ¿He looked me all over¿ ¿My dear master was cheering on his comrades when one of the balls, whizzing close to my head, struck him¿ I galloped across the meadow out of sheer spirits at being free ¿Just get into this cab, and I¿ll drive you safe to the hospital,¿ said Jerry My groom began patting me as if he were quite overjoyed at seeing me again That was talking about some of the black and white illustrations by Edwin John Prittie, the four color illustrations by Edward F. Cortese and two of the color illustrations of Going for the doctor and 'He looked me all over' by Percy F. Spence and that would make it just for the perfect book illustrated by Scott McKowen if you imagined it in your head to make it go with the book. My best favorite books of Black Beauty are Illustrated by Neil Reed: published by Prospero books in 2001, Illustrated by Scott McKowen, Illustrated by Ian Andrew, Adapted by June Brigman & Roy Richardson, Adapted by Lisa Church and Illustrated by Lucy Corvino, Illustrated in black and white by Edwin John Prittie and four color illustrations by Edward F. Cortese, Illustrated by Fritz Eichenberg: Illustrated Junior Library copyright in 1995, Adapted by Laura F. Marsh, Illustrated by William Geldart and Illustrated by G. P. Micklewright and that's my best ten favorite books of Black Beauty to read and look at in Baddeck to read over the summer and that's how you love the best ten books of Black Beauty, as if you could live in all of them. But the best ones to be in are Illustrated by Neil Reed: published by Prospero books in 2001, Illustrated by Scott McKowen, Illustrated by Ian Andrew, Adapted by June Brigman & Roy Richardson, Adapted by Lisa Church and Illustrated by Lucy Corvino, Illustrate
