About the Author

Anna Sewell, March 30, 1820 - April 25, 1878 Anna Sewell was on March 30, 1820 in Yarmouth, Norfolk, England. She was raised a Quaker by her father a bank manager and her mother, a children's novelist. At the age of fourteen, Sewell hurt her knee during a fall and the injury never healed right. mostrar mais Even though she could not walk well, she could still ride horses and drive a horse drawn buggy. It was this form of freedom that sparked her concern for the welfare of horses. She wrote "Black Beauty" when she was in her fifties, but died a year after it was published in 1877. While she never earned much from the book while she was alive, after her death, the novel snowballed into a something extraordinary. The book was about the abuses horses sustained in their lifetimes, but was told from the unique viewpoint of the horse. Even though the book was intended for children, it impacted all generations and caused everyone who read it to take a look at the inhumane treatment horses received. In the one hundred plus years since "Black Beauty" had been published, over 30 million copies have been printed. At least eight motion pictures have been made based on the novel and it is a well known children's classic. Anna Sewell died on April 25, 1878 in Old Catton, Norfolk.

Pequena biografia
Anna Sewell was the daughter of popular English poet and children's writer Mary Sewell and her husband Isaac, devout Quakers. Anna was disabled as the result of a childhood injury and was confined to home for much of her life. She helped edit her mother's works. In 1845, the family moved to Lancing in West Sussex, and it may have been here, with the acquisition of a pony chaise, that Anna developed her love of horses. Her only published novel was Black Beauty (1877), but its lasting fame and popularity is so great as to make her one of the all-time bestselling writers. It was published when she was 57 years old, and she died five months later.

Possible Children's Story From Horse's Perspective em Name that Book (Janeiro 2017)

Resenhas

"Black Beauty" is the classic horse story, a beautiful and touching tale told by the title character himself. Set in Victorian London, it follows Beauty's life and changing fortunes as he moves from owner to owner. As the horse encounters new experiences and new friends who reveal their own histories, the story quietly paints a fascinating portrait of how animals were treated during that era.

Read by Simon Vance, Black Beauty describes his life in Victorian London, and that of his fellow horses. As he takes us through his life, he explains how man in his ignorance, pride, or drunkenness can make a horse's life as dismal as it would be under the care of an intentionally cruel master, and in contrast, how much better for the horse's health and spirit is a gentle hand and understanding heart.

A horse's life can be filled with love and tenderness. It can also be filled with meanness and cruelty. Black Beauty learns both sides of life in this classic tale by Anna Sewell.
