Black Beauty and The Knight’s Mare
Illustrated by Susanna Lockheart, Stories adapted by Saviour Pirotta - All books by this author
This brand-new addition to artist Susan Lockheart’s beautifully illustrated series of tales for children tells the stories of two legendary horses from very different times and places. Black Beauty is the well-known and beloved tale of a high spirited young colt who is passed from owner to owner during his lifetime, sometimes suffering mistreatment, but always serving his masters to the best of his ability. The Knight’s Mare is a lesser-known tale that gets a much-deserved retelling in this handsome volume. It’s the story of an impoverished knight, his horse, and a wicked duke’s charming daughter, Charlotte, whom the knight hopes to marry. The large, watercolor illustrations that fill this book feature details that move and change as if by magic when the book’s pages are lifted and turned. Like other volumes in this series, If You Love a Horse Tale incorporates an innovative paper-engineering technique that produces the detail changes in each attractive picture. (Ages 5 and older)
