|Author:||Anna Sewell; Meg Rosoff (Introduction by); Charlotte Hough (Illustrator)|
|Series:||Puffin Classics Ser.|
Anna Sewell (1820-78) was born in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk. Black Beauty, her only book, was completed and published in 1877, just a few months before she died, so she did not live to know of the book's huge success. Apart from being a good story, Black Beauty was instrumental in changing people's attitudes towards horses, and domestic animals in general.
