Undoubtedly, quite a large number of protagonists are children, young adults or grown-ups. We see dashing knights, mighty heroines, brave children and wicked villains. But rarely do we see any other protagonists than humans.
Black Beauty (by Anna Sewell) is a real page-turner. The story is told from the point-of-view of a horse, which focuses on the treatment of animals, most often very cruel rather than not. It takes us from a beautiful country were horses live in relative peace to the back-breaking work on the streets of London. Overall, the book is educational, heartbreaking, heartwarming and emotional with a very important lesson to teach.
