We call them dumb animals, and so they are, for they cannot tell us how they feel, but they do not suffer less because they have no words.

Anna Sewell

Anna Sewell (1820 - 1878) had just one book published. Written while in ill health, she sold it to a local publisher for £40. Published five months before her death, 'Black Beauty' is the most popular animal story ever written, and the sixth best seller in the English language.
