Product Description

Product Description

Everyone's heard about Black Beauty, probably the greatest horse that ever lived. But what about the rest of his family? Here we meet some of his other extraordinary relations, each with an amazing story to tell. There's his brother, Black Ebony, who is involved in a terrible mining accident; his great niece, Black Princess, a heroine in World War One; and then there's Black Velvet, a distant relation whose life as a show jumper is about to change dramatically.

About the Author

The Pullein-Thompson sisters have written hundreds of books about ponies and horses, both collectively and individually.

5.0 out of 5 stars Black Beauty's Family 27 July 2012
By Clare O'Beara TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
The three Pullein-Thompsons sisters created a marvellous book in this and its counterpart, Black Beauty's Clan.
Each sister tells a story of a horse related to Black Beauty, whether a highwayman's horse, a carthorse, a hunter or a racehorse. Black Ebony, Black Velvet, Blossom and other horses spring to life and show us what times were like and how horses lived and worked.
I highly recommend these two books. I have seen one portion sold as a separate small book but all three tales complement each other and it would be very fiddly to try to collect all six separately, if they were even all published that way.

The Pullein-Thompsons were sisters who grew up between the wars, when horses were in daily use, and during the second world war they taught riding extensively as there was very little petrol so horses were put back in use. Their own story is told by themselves in Fair Girls On Grey Horses. They have all written horsey books but to my mind the best writer was Christine.

Another book like this was Son of Black Beauty by Phyllis Briggs.

5.0 out of 5 stars black beauty 20 Feb 2003
Format:Paperback
Black Beauty
Black beauty is an excellent book I would say it's the best book ever. It was written by Anna Sewell who is an excellent writer black beauty gets sold to all different people and family's his first family are called the squire gorgons they were very nice to him he had friends there called ginger and mary legs he then gets sold to a different person who is full of evil through her whole body but something bad happens on a dark cold night and because of that black beauty gets sold to lots of other different people.

What I think of it
I think the book is brilliant the way it was set and how the writer thought of the story I myself think it should win an award for best writer and story I also think it has a lot of twists and turns it goes from happy to sad all the time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Meet Black Beauty's Family 17 Sep 2012
By Jessica - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Great stories however its a little bizare because Black Beauty is a gelding (No able to reproduce) However that aside these are wonderful stories that are well written and thoroughly enjoyable. I wish more of the Pullen Thompson stories would be put onto kindle as they are truely classic horse stories
