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.
