About this title


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

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-4 The test for artists in portraying this classic fairy tale is in the making of the beast. Schroeder delineates him as a gray, spotted beast with a boar-like head and piercing eyes, dressed in a magenta robe. Other versions have "lionized" him with varying tusks, horns, and names (Michael Hague Holt, 1980; Mercer Mayer Four Winds, 1978; Diane Goode Bradbury, 1978), while Warwick Hutton (Atheneum, 1985) treated him as a primitive-age man, and Errol Le Cain (Doubleday, 1979) made him an aged humanoid with ears and paws. The fierceness and puissance of Schroeder's image strikingly expresses the power of the story. Full pages of text alternate with ten full-page illustrations and three double-page spreads. Overall, the artwork has a haunting quality, contrasting with the other romanticized, pretty, rococo renditions. Light is used to focus the figures, while shadowy images lurk in the fringe area. Spareness of objects and placement of unusual items lend a surrealistic feeling. Both language and story line flow smoothly. A postscript describes "Beauty's" origin and subsequent versions, citing the tale as "primal" in its use of symbol. The illustrations fulfill that image. Julie Cummins, Monroe County Lib .
