Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 4-7-This installment in the series tells of Beauty, a plain girl whose life drastically changes after a fire destroys her father's business, and Riley, a prince who would rather gaze at the stars than dance at lavish balls. When a mischievous witch turns Riley into a hideous beast and renders his family completely invisible, he must find a girl to love him before his time runs out. Told in alternating viewpoints, this is an appealing fairy-tale spin-off. The characters and dialogue emphasize the importance of family strength in times of adversity. Both Beauty's and Riley's families face serious problems, but they handle their issues with integrity, humor, and courage. At times, however, the dialogue doesn't sound authentic and seems pieced together with little or no transition. Pacing is also a concern. The stories meander through lots of events before the two finally meet, but they all seem random and do little to enhance the plot. It isn't until about 70 pages from the end that the traditional story begins, leaving some to wonder what took so long. Still, Mass and fairy-tale retellings are popular with tweens, and librarians looking for light, nonviolent retellings will find that Beauty fits the bill nicely.-Leigh Collazo, Ed Willkie Middle School, Fort Worth, TXα(c) Copyright 2011.

Review

Praise for 11 Birthdays

*"Mass's expertise with pacing keeps the story moving at a lively clip, and her understanding of this age group is as finely honed as ever." —Publishers Weekly, starred review\

Praise for Finally

"Growing up doesn't have to happen all at once, and it isn't always all it's cracked up to be . . . Mass provides a pretty entertaining and solidly worthwhile read." —Kirkus

Praise for 13 Gifts

*"Mass keeps the plot jumping like a fireworks display; there's one surprise spark after another, all coming together at the end for a breathtaking finale." —School Library Journal, starred review

I would recommend it to anyone who likes fantasies!!!
Allison Briggs
The beggining was very good and detailed but as the story progressed the plot became more rushed and the details started to disapear.

This book is great if you love adventure romance and humor.

My 11 year old is an advanced reader so it can be hard to find a book she really enjoys that is also to her reading level without being too mature. She has really enjoyed this series of books and couldn't put them down.

I liked that Beauty's name didn't really fit her in the beginning but at the end it did. I also thought that it was cool that Veronica believed in other fairy tales especially because she said the other fairy tales she believed in were other stories in the series. I hope that there will be more books in the series and have the last one have all the characters meet each other and go on some kind of adventure.

Format: Hardcover
This was a fun book that brings a classic fairy tale to present day teenage life. My eldest daughter really enjoyed this book and seeing that I read it with her I have to say that it was am engaging read that kept me actively pushing forward through the book from beginning to end. The book was set up well to keep you guessing and does a good job at this. The author has provided the reader with characters that have some depth to them and you can't not come to like them with every page that you read. Overall, this was a well written book that has encouraged my daughter to read more in the series!

This book was the best ever! Every sentence kept making me want to read more and more until I finished the whole book! I loved all the suspense in the book and could almost never put it down. This book was interesting and a great fantasy. I even like this book best than the beauty and the beast Disney movie. I recommend this book to fantasy lovers and just people who want it find a good book. This is definitely my new favorite Wendy mass book!

My 7 year old daughter enjoyed this rewrite of Beauty and the Beast. It is a wonderful story filled with adventure. Her only complaint it that it ended to soon. It either needs a epilogue or a sequel to tie up the loose ends.

These are really great books. My daughter loves fairy tales told with a different twist (as do I). These stories offer that fun, different perspective. The only drawback is, my daughter became super interested in these stories...and then, for whatever reason, they stopped publishing new books in the series:( Sadly, we had to look elsewhere for alternative fairy tales on her grade level.
