Push, pull, and slide the scenes to bring the classic story of Beauty and the Beast to life.
"Do you love me, Beauty? Will you marry me?" First Stories: Beauty and the Beast is a perfect introduction to this classic fairytale. Push, pull, and turn mechanisms bring the story to life and introduce all the main characters: Beauty, her father, and of course the Beast! This well-loved fairytale is beautifully imagined for a new generation by children's illustrator Dan Taylor.
Dan Taylor has always had a passion for illustration and, since graduating with an illustration degree, has been working for many years as a freelance artist on a variety of projects. Much of his inspiration comes from love of 1950s and '60s design, and his heroes include Mary Blair, Alexander Girard, and Charles and Ray Eames. Dan works in a number of different media, including traditional painting techniques combined with digital. He obsessively collects mid-20th century and Scandinavian furniture, drinks tea by the gallon, and lives with a mischievous little dog named Bertie.
