Reviews for Black Beauty

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2005 Spring
The classic horse story is presented in an unabridged format. Each chapter begins with a small scratchboard drawing; unfortunately, the same handful of illustrations is recycled throughout, giving the volume a generic presentation. The book, which includes a ribbon bookmark, ends with a list of open-ended questions ("Would it have been as powerful a story if it was told from the human point of view?").
