    One thought on “Beauty and the Beast”

    1. This story was a somewhat similar retelling of Beauty and the Beast. The main difference that I saw was that the father picked a rose from the Beasts garden and that was what caused Belle to have to live with the Beast. The poetry was beautiful and the pictures were so intricate and intriguing that they told a story of their own. Majority of retells from tales are somewhat different; I find it interesting and fun to observe those difference and pick them out. I found this book on looking up Beau [...]

    2. I'm struggling with how I feel about this book. Certain elements were skipped that I felt should not have been. And the random white rose bugged. The roses are described verbal as red but in the picture beauty's rose is white. Plus a white rose means peace. It doesn't fit the story like other colors of roses would. The cover art is a great visual depiction of Beauty and the Beast.

    3. A mediocre version of the classic tale. Beauty is sent to live with the Beast in his castle after her father steals a rose from him. She was at first frightened of him but found they had things in common once she got to know him. He was actually very kind. The Beast had fallen in love with Beauty and let her return home, but if she did not come back in a week, he would die. Beauty came back and found Beast dying. She loved him and kissed him. He turned into a Prince and they lived happily ever a [...]

    4. Standard version text with very little embellishment of the basic story. Illustrations by Winslow Pinney Pels are in pastel with non-specific time period which at times looks fairly modern (1930s?). Beast is portrayed as a hairy, sad-faced monster who sometimes looks a bit like a Morlock from The Time Machine and at other times resembles a Minotaur or even Cousin It! I own the hard cover ed which has the same cover as the paperback. Not one of my favorites.

    5. Okay version of Beauty and the Beast. I didn't like how magical this one was it made it seem to much like Cinderella.
