Critic Reviews for Black Beauty

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

Presents its hero as a horse - nothing more - and the adventures befall her precisely because she doesn't have any conscious choice about how humans use her. This is faithful to the moral indignation of Anna Sewell...

Pleasant version of classic children's story headed by Oliver's Mark Lester.
