Read in June, 2009 — I own a copy , read count: 1

** spoiler alert ** Beauty and the Beast is my #1 favourite book of all time!!!

This book needed improvements though..
Cameron Dokey used the French version of the story and not
Disney's. I would've preferred Disney's and the reason for
that is the French version spends wayyyyy too much time
on her family! There was barely anything to read about the Beast. Cameron Dokey only spent about 40 pages on him and
I think that ruined everything for me. I was becoming impatient and frustrated from rushing through the chapters
just to read the damn page when they actually meet.
The book is called "Beauty and the Beast" not
"Beauty and her family".. she should've focused on the
Beast a lot more..

Dissapointing but i liked how Cameron added her own mix to
it: the heart tree.. but that's the only she reall originally
added. There may be more that she did but they didn't stand

I would have given this a rating of a 2 but i just couldn't
because BTB is my favourite story.
Fair book i guess...
