black beauty

Black Beauty: as told by Uncle Mal for today's boys and girls.

Bernice Magnie, an Art Instructor, educator, and collector, from the Far West, illustrated only this and Sondo a Liberian Boy. Her Black Beauty might have been thought too sophisticated for its intended audience, as quite a few nice ones in jacket survive. However, the illustrations are gorgeous, swirling black and green lithographic crayon. They are stylized but show an affinity for horses: she's got the way they lean into people they love. Sewall's story is retold for young children by Uncle Mal, who retold stories "in a modern manner... on his famous Radio Hour." NOTE: This Book has been sold.
