This story of a horse's life, first published in 1877, is as appealing today as when first written. Told from the horse's point of view, it is both a great story, and a plea for the fair treatment of animals in our care. - Eileen/Reader Services Librarian
The classic life story of the eponymous horse, from their point of view.

"McKinley has managed to retain Beauty's unique voice. This version brings back the sharpened cruelty towards Beauty and his companions, and McKinley has rightfully retained the pain and the sadness of some of the incidents. Children will still weep at the death of Ginger, and Jeffer's portrayal of the fire is quite frightening." (Novelist Review)
