"It would be rare for a story that depends so thoroughly on establishing empathetic connection to succeed as a picture-book adaptation, and this one doesn't, but the illustrations provide such a sumptuous visual feast that it is most assuredly worth perusing. (Picture book. 3-7)"

BLACK BEAUTY by Anna Sewell
Released: Nov. 14, 1990

Never before has this favorite been so handsomely, and appropriately, illustrated. Keeping (d. 1988), a master draftsman who illustrated 300 books, including all of Dickens, has provided a bountiful number of drawings (some subtly touched with color), combining piercing caricature, compassion, and a sure eye for the horses' beauty, movement, and (at the worst of times) plight. A masterpiece of illustration, capturing the book's drama and period while rising nobly above its sentimentality. Read full book review >
