Beauty: A retelling of Beauty & the Beast


From Newbery Medal winning author Robin McKinley, this beloved story illuminates an unlikely love story -Beauty and the Beast. This fortieth-anniversary edition features a striking new package for the award-winning novel. 

Beauty has never liked her nickname. She is thin and awkward; it is her two sisters who are the beautiful ones. But what she lacks in appearance, she can perhaps make up for in courage. When her father comes home with a tale of an enchanted castle in the forest and the terrible promise he had to make to the Beast who lives there, Beauty knows she must travel to the castle, a prisoner of her own free will. Her father insists that he will not let her go, but she responds, "Cannot a Beast be tamed?"
