6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By PeaTee TOP 500 REVIEWER on October 19, 2009
Format: Paperback
This is an interesting little book. The story is "Beauty and the Beast" but not the modern Disney-fied version. Instead it harkens back to the original where there are selfish sisters and a dad that promises to send Beauty to see The Beast, if only The Beast won't eat him. (He's not kept captive, you see)

In this version, Beauty traipses off to see The Beast after her father arrives home. The two hang out and then, after awhile, she tells Beast that she misses her family, whereupon they agree she should go, promising to return in one week. What Beauty doesn't know as she departs is that all promises are binding in the castle. And that if she doesn't return within the allotted time that The Beast will die.

Even with these small changes, the story will be fairly familiar to most of us who have heard it before. And in that sense, this book is likely to be a success with it's target audience. Where it might not succeed would be with children who aren't that familiar with story, or with children who are ready for a more detailed version. This one, you see, is rather short and rather light on continuity. You would think the story could be told in 40 pages, but in truth there isn't a great deal of text per page-- little more than a sentence or two -- and perhaps that's what accounts for the lapses.

Talking Points:::
This book is at the AR 2.6 level, which means that this is a graphic novel in a more simple form than you might be picturing in your mind. Luke Feldman's artwork is simple and appropriate for youngsters. The Beast is interesting without being scary, and the drawings are more cartoonish than anime. Sort of on the order of Dora the Explorer if done in darker tones.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've bought this book 3 times now because it's so popular in my classroom that it endures a lot abuse. I'm going to cover it with contact paper this time, hopefully that will help. The illustrations in this book are absolutely georgious, the colors are fantastic. Of all the Graphic Sping books, it's the most appealing with Jack & the Beanstalk right behind it.
