From the Publisher:
The magical castle and horrendous beast frighten Beauty at first. But she falls in love with them both in this Short Tale, and so will young readers. Green level for your beginning reader.A magical castle and a horrendous beast frighten Beauty at first, but she falls in love with them both in this adaptation of the classic fairy tale.
Annotation:
Filled with imaginative, delicate, and enchanting watercolor illustrations, this charming adaptation of the fairy-tale classic involves a gentle, loving father, a dreamy but intelligent daughter, and a compelling, properly furry Beast. Picture book readers will delight in the fantastical, inventive imagery and the well-written text.

Praise

"The story follows the familiar trajectory, with marvelously effective embellishments of the wonders the castle holds for Beauty...Barrett takes advantage of the nineteenth-century setting to infuse her delicate, quietly colored watercolors with a gothic sensibility; her landscapes are alternately menacing of fanciful, as befits the mood of the characters and the tone of the story...Even collections with a glut of Beauty and the Beast variants needs to make room for this one." 3/1/2007

"Barrett's lovely watercolor illustrations vary in size and shape and the effective use of light and shadow communicates the shifting moods." 12/1/2006
