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" and "Sleeping 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.
