Beauty and the Beast
Audience: 3rd Grade - 6th Grade
A luscious retelling of the classic tale, set the early 1900s. Beauty lives with her father and two older sisters, Vanessa and Mona, in New York City. Their father is a rich merchant, until his ships are lost at sea and they must sell everything. They move upstate to a tumble-down farmhouse. 'Pretty girls are a dime a dozen. Beauty is much rarer than you might suppose.' A delightful read rich in detail and full of magic.
