Award-winning team Mahlon and Kinuko Craft bring us a gorgeous and vivid retelling of the classic story of Beauty and the Beast in this stunningly illustrated picture book.
The tale is as old as time: A man steals a rose from the garden of a beast. His beautiful daughter sacrifices herself to a life in the beast’s castle to protect her father. The beast and the girl fall in love and live happily ever after…
This beloved tale is captured with lyrical prose and lavish illustration. True to the original versions of this timeless tale, and not watered down with the popular Disney version. The book is stunningly brought to life with sumptuous paintings and ornamental detail to be cherished at story time again and again.
A personal note: our own children have loved all of the mesmerizing details of the Kinuko Craft-illustrated storybooks, and they are perennial favorites taken down from the shelf for bedtime. Even our older children regularly peruse their lush pages to fully absorb the glorious illustrations and seek out details they may have previously missed. We cannot recommend them enough!
