About this item
Lovely Beauty, dry your eyes.In this place no danger lies,For when you have a wish or need,You have only to ask and I must heed.
A Beauty, beloved for her spirit, a Beast, with a plea for kindness,the spell that encircles them,and the kind of magic only an honest heart may bring . . .
The timeless tale of Beauty and the Beast is captured with breathtaking style in this lavishly illustrated story by the award-winning team of Mahlon and Kinuko Craft. In a glorious castle set deep in a mysterious forest, the tale of a father's fate-filled promise and a daughter's courage unfolds.
In the spirit of the Crafts' acclaimed fairy-tale retellings of Cinderella andSleeping Beauty, this story, themed on Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont's version first published in France in 1756, is filled with sumptuous paintings and ornamental detail. The artist has created wonderfully rich, imaginative scenes.
The beloved classic is brilliantly brought to life in this lush picture book to be cherished at story time again and again.
