Beauty and the Beast is my favorite fairy tale and Disney movie. I was excited to read this book. I was amazed at how similar it was to the Disney movie. I wonder if Disney had read this book before doing the movie.

I thought this was a great book. The beginning dragged A LOT for me. I had to force myself to read. But when Beauty got to the castle, it picked up and I finished it in almost no time.

I found myself also being bored because I read Rose Daughter by McKinley earlier this year and this book was really similar.

But, Robin McKinley is an amazing writer and she has not disappointed me yet. I cannot wait to read more of her books.

She is a fantastic storyteller and she proved it to me once again with this book.
