Synopsis: Through her great capacity to love, a kind and beautiful maid releases a handsome prince from the spell which has made him into an ugly beast.

From School Library Journal: Grade 3 Up-Traditionalists will not find this retelling of the classic tale to their liking. McCaughrean dispenses with the scene-setting introduction of the original tale that takes Beauty's father from wealth to ruin and provides the reason for his arrival at Beast's palace. She begins, instead, on a cloudy night when a man named Gregor, traveling on horseback, glimpses the rooms of a palace in a fragment of mirror on the forest floor and is magically transported there. Inside, the man, who is Beauty's father, discovers breathtaking opulence, great gilded mirrors filled with cracks, and statues blindfolded with scarves of silk. He offers Beast some of his wealth in exchange for the rose he has picked. In the denouement, Beauty returns to her dying Beast and the spell is broken, the palace melts "like winter ice" and disappears. Blythe's artistic talent is evident in his full-page color scenes and in his pencil drawings and vignettes, but there is nothing classical about the appearance of Beauty and her father or their clothing. His Beast has a grotesque, misshapen, hairless face with deeply sunken eyes and small pointy ears. Readable as it is, the story has been so abbreviated and changed that it lacks several classic elements that are essential to the fairy-tale genre: the style of the storyteller, the triumph of good over evil, and a clear lesson of life. Marianna and Mercer Mayer's version (SeaStar, 2000) more closely parallels the original and is accompanied by exceptional romantic illustrations that are appropriate to the story.
