Black Beauty by Anna Sewell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
When you're growing up in the 1880's, nothing beats the traditional Liberal education. The important features you ought to be learning about your world around you shouldn't only be the plight of orphans in the streets or the seedy underbelly of our overcrowded and filthy cities.
You need to be aware of animal cruelty.
In particular, you need to be aware that if you mistreat your horses, they will not be able to write effectively on their typewriters.
Do not assume these are all ghostwritten. There are lots of horses out there who are very good at writing, but if you overwork them and mistreat them, they may never show you the other talents they may have, deep inside.
Please, be aware.
Bless your Christian heart. Oh, and cabbies DO deserve Sunday off. Don't perpetuate the injustices.
