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.

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.
