A bright, illustrated retelling of the classic fairy tale!
Long before Disney’s classic animated movie, the French story of “Beauty and the Beast” was told to children everywhere. In this tale as old as time, Beauty is the youngest daughter of a wealthy merchant. While out traveling the merchant gets lost and takes shelter in a seemingly empty castle. On his way out, he picks a rose to take back to Beauty, but is caught by the owner of the castle, a ginormous beast, who is enraged at the merchant’s theft. When the merchant explains his actions, the beast demands he bring Beauty to live with him at the castle as payment . . . forever.
