I read Beautiful Joe as a child of maybe 10, over 40 years ago. Can you remember all the books you read in grade school, junior high, high school? If you are like me, probably not. I was not even an avid reader, but sometimes enjoyed going to the library near my grandma's house on those occasions when I spent the night there, to pick out a book or two. One of those times I picked up Beautiful Joe. I have never forgotten it. A few years ago I began to search for it in bookstores--never to be found and the library version is always checked out. How can a book make such a lasting impression upon a person? Thank you Amazon for carrying it.
