Loved it as a child

posted 5 years ago

I read Beautiful Joe when I was very young. I think about 11. They called him Beautiful Joe, because he was so ugly from the mistreatment he received, and they didn't want him to know that he was ugly. That was the sweetest reason and I loved this book. I have always loved animals, had so many of them, thanks to my husband catering to his country wife, he, being from the city, never had a pet.

Pros: One of my first books that made me cry

Cons: One of my first books that mad me cry

Delightful!

posted 5 years ago

I bought this book at a garage sale and loved it! It was written before its time. A lovely story about some children who take in an abused dog and how they love him and he loves them in return. It is a wonderful heart warming story.
If you can find it I would highly recommend reading it. It will make you smile and wish for simpliar times.

Pros: sweet, simple book

Cons: none

A 19th century book for the 21st century

posted 6 years ago

More than 40 years ago this book by Marshall Saunders (a woman), along with Anna Sewell's "Black Beauty" had a profound influence on me. Fair warning: Joe had a terrible beginning, but quickly moves into a forever home where he's loved and nurtured. An animal rights/welfare message is strong in this story.

Pros: Will motivate young animal activists

Cons: Some very sad but necessary details

I have 3 cats and they love this food. They eat less and walk away with a full belly. Eating less means pooping less and less litter. All around a great choice for my cats.
