it was amazing
bookshelves: children, fantasy, romance, picture-book
Read in October, 2009

This is a beautifully illustrated and extended version of the familiar fairy tale. Beauty's sisters are given names and her father a fleshed-out character of kindly, wealthy if over-indulgent parent.

This book was so gorgeous and sumptuous in its storytelling and pictures that I immediately wanted it though it’s a library book. I already have two or three versions of the Beauty and the Beast fairy tale. It remains my favorite children’s story and I have a weakness for any version as well-told and lovingly illustrated as this one is.
