About the Author
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.
