Black Beauty tells his own story, from his life as a foal to the various owners and places he lived. Through the highs and lows, good owners and bad, Black Beauty describes life as a horse in England in the late nineteenth century. This was an era when horses were the main mode of transportation and were often mistreated. This classic story includes some harsh scenes of cruelty to animals, but Black Beauty has a happy ending.

One day, Bushi is chased by a group of older kids, 'The Bullfrogs.' They like nothing more than to dominate younger students. Bushi runs until he finds a door, which he enters, escaping his pursuers. There, he finds the black belt of a karate master, and strapping the belt around him transports him to a long ago world. When he arrives, the Master teaches him a lesson he can use to adopt the spirit of a tiger and triumph over the bullies. This title is in picture book format, but suitable for older readers.

James lives in a biracial, musical family which he finds tedious at times. When the family is called to London for his mother to perform, James goes sight-seeing with his father. (Oh, no, not again). On one of these visits in London, James discovered a portal that leads him to the 1600's. What happens theatrically and politically during the 1600's leads to a real education for James (and the reader). What a difference in how people lived then and now. He must solve a problem from the 1600's before he can return to present London. A great book for boys that like history from the point of time travel.
