Beauty and the Beast

The new Beauty and the Beast movie is just one week away! Here in our store we have books and some other cute things to get you excited for the movie!


 

The Beast Within

1The tale is as old as time: a cruel prince is transformed into a beast. A lovely maiden comes into this monster’s life. He is transformed by her compassion, and the love he feels for her in return. The two live happily ever after.

But any tale, especially one as storied as Beauty and the Beast’s has been told many different times, and in many different ways. No matter which version one hears, the nagging question remains: what was it that transformed the prince into the beast we are introduced to?

This is one version, pulled from the many passed down through the ages. It’s a story of vanity and arrogance, of love and hatred, of beastliness, and, of course, of beauty.


 

The Beauty and the Beast2

One of the most beloved fairy tales of all time gets reimagined in this deluxe unabridged collector’s edition. Since its initial publication in 1740, generations of readers have been captivated by Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve’s timeless story about a beautiful young girl who falls in love with a ferocious beast. With all-new lush illustrations and exclusive interactive elements from the award-winning design studio MinaLima, this charming book invites you to explore the Beast’s enchanted palace with Beauty and a host of magical creatures. It is the perfect addition to any library and sure to delight readers of all ages.


 

Beauty: A reeling of the story of Beauty and the Beast

by Robin McKinley3

Sixteen-year-old Beauty has never liked her nickname. Thin, awkward, and undersized, with big hands and huge feet, she has always thought of herself as the plainest girl in her family–certainly not nearly as lovely as her elder sisters, Hope and Grace. But what she lacks in looks, she makes up for in courage. When her father comes home one day with the strange tale of an enchanted castle in the wood  and the terrible promise he has made to the Beast that lives there, Beauty knows what she must do. She must go to the castle and tame the Beast–if such a thing is possible….

Here is the unusual love story of a most unlikely couple: Beauty . . . and the Beast.


 

Belle

by Cameron Dokey4

A retelling of “Beauty and the Beast”

Belle is convinced she has the wrong name, as she lacks her sisters’ awe-inspiring beauty. So she withdraws from society, devoting her time to wood carving. Secretly, Belle longs to find the fabled Heartwood Tree. If carved by the right hands, the Heartwood will reveal the face of one’s true love.

During a fierce storm, Belle’s father stumbled upon the mysterious Heartwood–and encounters a terrifying and lonely Beast. Now Belle must carve the Heartwood to save her father, and learn to see not with the eyes of her mind, but with the eyes of her heart.

A Dog’s Purpose

All dogs go to heaven… unless they have unfinished business here on Earth.

This is the remarkable story of one endearing dog’s search for his purpose over the course of several lives. More than just another charming dog story. A Dog’s Purpose touches on the universal quest for an answer to life’s most basic question: Why are we here?

Surprised to find himself reborn as a rambunctious golden-haired puppy after a tragically short life as a stray mutt, Bailey’s search for his new life’s meaning leads him into the loving arms of eight-year-old Ethan. During their countless adventures Bailey joyously discovers how to be a good dog.

But this life as a beloved family pet is not the end of Bailey’s journey. Reborn as a puppy yet again, Bailey wonders–will he ever find his purpose?

Heartwarming, insightful, and often laugh-out-loud funny, A Dog’s Purpose is not only the emotional and hilarious story of a dog’s many lives, but also a dog’s-eye commentary on human relationships and the unbreakable bonds between man and man’s best friend. This moving and beautifully crafted story teaches us that love never dies, that our true friends are always with us, and that every creature on earth is born with a purpose.

THE YEAR OF VOTING DANGEROUSLY

dangerouslyby Maureen Dowd

Caught between two candidates with the highest unfavorables ever recorded, waging one of the nastiest races ever seen, Americans are plunged into the Year of Voting Dangerously. It is a surreal fever dream, a campaign unlike any other. New York Times columnistMaureen Dowd traces the psychologies and pathologies in America’s most epic and consequential battle of the sexes.

It’s Bigly, as Trump would say.

Dowd has covered Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton for decades. She was with the real estate mogul when he shyly approached his first presidential rope line in 1999 and has interviewed him throughout the campaign season as he has been compared to Hitler, Mussolini, Idi Amin, Berlusconi, a Marvel villain, a con man, and a big orange clown puffer fish. Dowd has covered Hillary Clinton since 1992, from her quest to be First Lady all the way through her two bids to be First Lady President, with Bill as First Lad.

HILLARY’S AMERICA

hillaryby Dinesh D’Souza

Bestselling author Dinesh D’Souza has a warning: We are on the brink of losing our country forever. After eight years of Obama, four years–or possibly eight years–of Hillary Clinton as president of the United States would so utterly transform America as to make it unrecognizable.

No more will America be a land of opportunity. Instead, it will be a land of rapacious crony capitalism, run solely for the benefit of friends of the Obamas and the Clintons and the Democratic Party. It will, in fact, be the fulfillment of a dream the Democratic Party has had from the beginning…a dream of stealing America for the politically favored few.

ARMAGEDDON: HOW TRUMP CAN BEAT HILLARY

armageddonby Dick Morris and Eileen McGann

The 2016 election is truly America’s Armageddon–the ultimate and decisive battle to save America, a fight to defeat Hillary Clinton and the forces seeking to flout our constitutional government and replace it with an all-powerful president backed up by an activist judiciary that answers to no one. Already President Obama has moved America far down this path, and a President Hillary Clinton will act as his “third term,” institutionalizing the excesses of the past eight years. In Armageddon, bestselling author and political strategist Dick Morris provides a winning game plan to take back the White House…
