Black Beauty: His Grooms and Companions and the Jungle Book.

“Black Beauty: His Grooms and Companions: The Autobiography of a Horse” is the life-long work of female author Anna Sewell, making her one of the monuments of global children's literature.

“Black Beauty: His Grooms and Companions: The Autobiography of a Horse” published by the Kim Dong Publishing House in July 2021 is a completely new translation by Bui Bao Dung, a 9X generation translator. Bui Bao Dung said she wants to create a translation that is accurate, easy to understand, and natural for Vietnamese readers whether it's their first time reading the work or not.

Meanwhile, “The Jungle Book”, another classic British literary work, was also renewed and released in this summer. “The Jungle Book” is a collection of stories about the fascinating animal world by Rudyard Kipling - the 1907 Nobel Prize winner for Literature.

“The Jungle Book” translated by Sam Nam, also a 9X generation translator, brings a modern and youthful touch suitable for 21st century readers without losing the deep majestic and wild atmosphere of the original.
