In your opinion, has the author successfully adapted this children’s fairytale to make it appealing to contemporary, teenaged readers? Why or why not?

Jodi (jodi-beth) | 6 comments Absolutely, I love it! Kyle is the perfect protagonist with his unapologetic materialism and vanity. I think it is great because in the traditional tale (or at least the Disney version) the reader does not get as much information about the beast prior to his transformation and isolation.
