With 50 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. The story is narrated in the first "person" as an autobiographical memoir told by a horse named Black Beauty—including his carefree days as a colt on an English farm, his later difficult life pulling cabs in London, and his happy retirement in the country.

It was great. I read it five times.
I didn't like the narrators pauses before the next chapter, because she stopped at the wrong times. Everything else was great.

The horse never gave up.
The horses persistence.
Where the horses reunited.
The horses helping people.
A peaceful tale great for snuggling up and listening or drifting of fto sleep. The narration keeps you focused and happy you are listening. My 8 yr old Daughter's favorite book.
A wonderful tale for children and adults alike. Seeing life through the eyes of a horse.
I loved it from the very first sentence to the the closing chapter. A tale I re-read/listen to over and over again.
She captured the essence of the horses in her voice and manner. Very easy to listen to.
extremely sad and cried when Ginger died but laughed off and on throughout the book
