Jan Brett--well-known for her artistry in Goldilocks and the Three Bears and The Mitten--has worked her usual magic on this beautiful edition of Beauty and the Beast. In a unique visual spin on the story, the tapestries hung on the walls of the Beast's castle reveal the true identities of the animal servants who are under the same spell as the Beast--a subtle, fascinating feature that may not be noticed until the second or third reading. The story's old-fashioned and graceful language perfectly accompanies the French court setting. One of the finest takes on this classic tale, Brett's Beauty and the Beast is described by Kirkus Reviews as "a lovely, carefully made edition of an old favorite."

The condensed storyline remains true to the original tale. It's the gentle sacrificial Beauty we all know, and an appropriately frightening boar-like Beast. My favorite addition was the whimsical animal servants -- each courteous and elegantly dressed. This book has the deferential charm of an old fashioned fairy tale and the ever-relevant moral of looking past outer appearances.
This book is a wonderful telling of the fairy tale. The true meaning of the tale comes shining through. The illustrations bring life to the printed words.
You will love this book.
