Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Once upon a time, long long ago, someone gave me an illustrated copy of Beauty and the Beast as a present. The story was a retelling of a retelling: this wasDeborah Apy's version retelling the one written by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont in 1756, which was a retelling of the original story, La Belle et la Bête written by Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve in 1740. I loved thestory and the illustrations by Michael Hague really intrigued me--theywere creepy and dark and fantastic. I loved his images of the horned,shaggy-albeit-well-dressed, angst-ridden Beast. Interestingly, we neverget to see the miraculous transformation of the prince... The finalpainting in the book is of Beauty finding the Beast dying of heartbreakin his rose garden.
Years later, I would see the Disney version and,though the story isn't all that similar to the original, I liked thecomedic aspects of it. However, I was disappointed with the Beast'stransformation--call me strange, but I actually preferred him as he was.

Beauty and His Beast is a story that's been percolating in my brain for a few years now.It's a mashup of the original stories, the Disney version, and bit ofanother book that has nothing to do with Beauty and the Beast, but wasmy absolute favourite when I was really young: Disney's The Black Hole: A Spaceship Adventure for Robots.
This story is not dark, not very long, and not particularly serious--just mysilly take on a much loved, oft-retold fairy tale... in space.
