Review From User :
I really enjoyed this graphic novel version of Black Beauty. It made me want to read the original, especially after I read the brief biography of Anne Sewell that is in the back of this version. I also thought it interesting to see some of the sketches by Brigman and how they came to life in the book. Black Beauty is a wonderful story for any animal lover and the graphic novel form helps it come alive for younger readers.
Genre(s): Animals & Nature
Black Beauty is one of the best-selling books of all time. It is the first and only novel written by the English author Anna Sewell and it was published shortly before she passed away in 1878. The story is written in the form of an autobiographical memoir told by a horse named Black Beauty. As we follow Black Beauty throughout her life the story contains many allegorical lessons that teach us to treat both people and animals with kindness and respect.
