As shown on the cover, the Beast is portrayed as a boar with long tusks. Later in the story when Beauty is residing with him, she dreams of a handsome prince who keeps telling her to not be deceived by outward appearances. Who is this prince? Is the Beast holding him captive? When he allows Beauty to return home to her family for a period of time will she come back to him as promised? Will it be too late?
A classic fairy tale that should be in all family libraries! I found one error where in the sentence "The advanced to meet her", "The" should be "They." Not enough to put you off reading though.
Regarding the original story. Was hard not to think of the differences of the Disney Version verses the original. The meat of the story is the same but not all the same. No singing tea pots, love of the library/booksis not there, etc. This original version is short, concise, clean. Children and preteens can read this. The pictures are nice.
old story and am happy to add this to my collection.
Then a ship that father thought was lost was discovered to be safe. It was filled with great wealth. Father wanted to celebrate by giving each daughter a gift. The spoiled daughters asked for much, but Beauty said she would be satisfied with a rose.
This request led to interesting consequences with a significant moral lesson.

The pictures are also very grown up, although that meant we could talk about all sorts of details in them.
I actually wanted more detail on some areas, like the interplay between Beauty's dreams and her waking life in the palace.
The illustrations are beautiful as well.
Modern children's stories are good but this, and others like it, are truly classic!
