Read in April, 2010 — I own a copy

OK version which follows pretty close to the classic story. I do like that the 'happily ever after' page gives a little more detail of what happened during the ever after.

The illustrations are pen drawings with color wash. The dress looks kind of Renaissance-ish. Beast has the legs & feet of a giant bird, long monkey-like tail, face and tusks of a wild boar or warthog and the curling horns of a ram.

I also own the video version of this, narrated by Mia Farrow.

purchased in 1989
