Bestseller Readers is a series of carefully chosen classical texts,
retold by modern authors in a way that will catch students’
attention. The aim of the series is to encourage students of
English to read for pleasure, rather than just for study purposes.
Carefully graded (vocabulary, syntax, grammar and content)
illustrated classical texts in six levels, retold by modern
authors. They encourage students to read for pleasure, help develop
vocabulary and give a ‘feel’ for syntax and different expressions.
Each title includes a glossary, a CD and activity book. Set in 19th
century England, this title tells the story of a horse called Black
Beauty, and of his life and experiences as he is bought and sold by
a variety of owners, some of whom treat him well, while others are
not so kind.
