First published in 1893 as a children's book to encourage the humane treatment of animals, Beautiful Joe has taken it's place along with Black Beauty, becoming a favorite of several generations of youngsters.

Beautiful Joe narrates the story of his mutilation at the hands of a cruel master and the love he finds in the home of a caring family full of kids and animals. Joe speaks not only for himself, but also for Jim the spaniel, Malta the cat, Davey the rat, Bella the parrot, and his other furry and feathered friends as they interact with humans, good and bad.

Today this book would probably be of more intetest to adults then children, but Beautiful Joe is a beautiful story.

    " I first read this at age 8 (seems to be a common age to first encounter this gem) and it has stayed with me ever since. This author was way ahead of her time and this could be the "poster book" for dog rescue agencies today. "

    " I read this book numerous times as a child and still like to read it as an adult. It's the "Black Beauty" of dog novels. Great read. "

    " i read this because I have always remembered it fondly from my grade school days. It was written 1893 as an entry in a contest by the American Humane Society. It is based on a true story. It had an impact on me as child. "

    " Finished re-reading this book. One of my favorites as a kid. The one I read was published in 1920, but I also have a first edition that an awesome friend found at a garage sale for me. "
