About Linda Thorn

Linda Thorn re-tells the well loved dog story of Beautiful Joe. Her book, Beautiful Joe- A true dog rescue story, is a poem format of the timeless and universally loved story by Margaret Marshall Saunders. This new book returns Joe to his Georgian Bay roots where his true story took place. Editor and graphic designer, Kelsey Carriere created an 1894 era theme for this delightful and visually attractive book which enhances the original turn of the century novel. Linda’s version describes in rhyme, the true story of the cruelly mistreated mongrel pup called Joe and his grateful rescue to a family who loved him in spite of his appearance. Joe lived a long happy life and there are actual photos of Joe’s gravesite and park. A portion of each book sale is donated to The Beautiful Joe Heritage Society which endorses this enterprise. There are 14 artistic new sketches by artist, Lin Souliere. Find a surprise sketched on each page for younger children. However, the book appeals to adults who will want this new version by e-book or print copy in their collection alongside the original book which sold 7 million copies in 14 languages by 1934.
