I remember by father first reading Black Beauty to me when I was about 8 or 9. It has become a cherished memory.
There is a beautifully restored, illustrated version from 1912 available for iPads on the iBookstore that has a really nice faux leather cover. The whole thing feels very vintage yet modern.
I agree with many of the comments below. Reading this book was like the taste of vomit in my mouth, and spewing forth all that is unholy. I could not finish reading it!
yeah I agree with the last comment, and the end was a bit of an anticlimax. Also is there some confusion between a changeling and a shape-shifter? two very different things
Liked it, quick read, likable characters
