Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It isnt easy being the rather overlooked and unhappy youngest sibling to sisters named for the other six days of the week. Sundays only comfort is writing stories, although what she writes has a terrible tendency to come true.

     When Sunday meets an enchanted frog who asks about her stories, the two become friends. Soon that friendship deepens into something magical. One night Sunday kisses her frog goodbye and leaves, not realizing that her love has transformed him back into Rumbold, the crown prince of Arilland—and a man Sundays family despises.

     The prince returns to his castle, intent on making Sunday fall in love with him as the man he is, not the frog he was. But Sunday is not so easy to woo. How can she feel such a strange, strong attraction for this prince she barely knows? And what twisted secrets lie hidden in his past—and hers?

Synopsis:

A charming tumble of all the fairy tales you ever knew blended into one delicious novel, spiced with humor and sprinkled with true love, by the New York Times bestselling co-author of  The Dark-Hunter Companion.

Synopsis:

A strange imprisonment

Beauty has never liked her nickname. She is thin and awkward; it is her two sisters who are the beautiful ones. But what she lacks in looks, she can perhaps make up for in courage.

When her father comes home with the tale of an enchanted castle in the forest and the terrible promise he had to make to the Beast who lives there, Beauty knows she must go to the castle, a prisoner of her own free will. Her father protests that he will not let her go, but she answers, "Cannot a Beast be tamed?"

Robin McKinley's beloved telling illuminates the unusual love story of a most unlikely couple: Beauty and the Beast.

Synopsis:

The Newbery Medal-winning author of "The Hero and the Crown" retells the classic fairy tale in this young adult edition, now available in a rack-sized paperback.

Robin McKinley's other books include the Newbery Award-winning The Hero and the Crown; Newbery Honor Book The Blue Sword; Sunshine; Spindle's End; Rose Daughter; Deerskin; The Outlaws of Sherwood; and the short story collections The Door in the Hedge; A Knot in the Grain and Other Stories; and, with her husband, the author Peter Dickinson, Water: Tales of Elemental Spirits.

This is a beautiful retelling of Beauty and the Beast. It is very similar to the Disney movie version, but much more grown-up and richer. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys the original story. I will be reading more works by this author. 5 stars!
