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.
