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!

Mckinley excels at the art of the fairy tale. She has a depth and humor that adds so much to the basic yarn. Beauty reminds me a great deal of Sara Carewe from Little Princess, in so much that she is nice and loves books and learning for the sake of learning.
