Review: 'Beauty and the Beast' Is a Tale as Old as Time, Told Worse - The AtlanticIn celebration of the new live action retelling, Disney Press has published a beautiful hardcover picture book that recounts the original fairytale the way generations of children first heard it. Beauty is the youngest of three sisters and her father is a voyaging merchant. When he loses his fortune and ends up lost in the woods, he is given food and shelter by a Beast. But after stealing a red rose for Beauty, the Beast demands that her father remain his prisoner. Gone are the enchanted objects, the enchanted rose, and even the name Belle. But it is still refreshing to experience the story in its most essential form.

Posted by Bailey Cavender Mar 15, There are some authors who, whenever I see their name on a book, I have to pick it up. For me, one of those authors is Robin McKinley. All of her books are magical tales, told using rich language with compelling characters. Her novels tend to be told in the third-person, but there is one exception.
All opinions are my own. Story time is always a favorite in this Neurotic Disney home. Books are wonderful on so many levels. We keep them everywhere — even in the car! Disney Books are a great way to keep Disney at home. But this book is mainly about Belle and Belle only. As Belle was in the library of the castle, she found the book, Nevermore.
I was initially pretty perplexed as to why Disney was bothering to make live-action remakes of some of its classic animated films, particularly those like The Jungle Book and Beauty and The Beast, where so many of the characters are still animated, just via modern computer-generated imagery rather than traditional 2D animation.
