Heartwrenching, beautiful and educational, this morality
tale and animal autobiography gives a majestic horse a voice that
is believable and unsentimental. An animal rights classic that is
also a great read, BLACK BEAUTY follows the life of an ebony
horse from birth to old age, from pasture to cobblestone streets
of 19th century England.
Voldemort and his followers, the Death Eaters, are out in the open now, so much so that Rufus Scrimgeour, the new Minister of Magic, feels it necessary to inform the muggle Prime Minister. Snape is up to no good, Draco has been given an assignment by the Dark Lord, and and a net of security has dropped on Hogwarts. Deaths, disappearances, and destruction increase as Harry's penultimate year at Hogwarts begins.
