Synopsis

A Storyteller Book Beauty and the Beast by Lesley Young

The classic tale of Beauty and the Beast will capture the heart of every child. Young readers will be thrilled by the adventures of the brave heroine as she gradually discovers the goodness beneath the outwardly terrifying exterior of the Beast. This attractive new version is retold with warmth and sensitivity, and illustrated with lively, decorative pictures by Annabel Spenceley. It is perfect for reading aloud to small children, or for more confident readers to enjoy by themselves. Bound by a promise made by her father, Beauty is sent to the lonely castle of the mysterious Beast. His palace is a magical place, where roses grow even in the middle of winter and food is always plentiful, but the Beast himself - a hairy creature with sharp teeth and claws - is fearful to behold. However, he shows kindness to Beauty, and eventually she learns that ugliness is only skin deep. Courage, love and loyalty overcome fear and envy in this timeless story, which is retold for a new generation with delightful illustrations throughout.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
