In “Belle”, we don’t have an idea of what their relationship is like. Either she had copied and pasted robin mckinley’s masterpiece exactly or she eokey quite obviously done the exact exact opposite.

It’s good to see the author show that beauty isn’t restricted. There is only one problem that I had cwmeron this version. Not as she discovers her gift for finding the heart of the wood she carves, or as her family stumbles into poverty, or as she enters the castle with the gate of two hands stretched out toward one another.

If that’s true, then I don’t have much to complain of the deja-vu feel. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. I liked the idea of her disappearing because she was “out of the birth order” while in line for a while – I wish something had dameron done more about that, since it was really intriguing.


Once upon a Time. Aug 23, Ash rated it really liked it. She lives in Seattle, Washington, with her husband and four cats. I always thought that it wasn’t fair that the Beast was loved by this beautiful girl. I would guess that adding overly dramatic scenes would have demanded more pages Which means I should probably back up and introduce myself.

Belle took a while to win me over she’s hung up on her looks – or lack thereof – for a little too longbut Dokey’s sweet wrap-up of the story won me over. I found myself falling for her words and enjoying the way she wields them in her story.

Belle: A Retelling of Beauty and the Beast

Although I didn’t love it, it was a very nice take on the old fairy tale. At noon, on a day in September that could have been either spring or autumn, judging by the blueness of the sky.

Though her imagination was vivid, my mother simply could not conjure what to call a child who had arrived with so little fanfare, on a day that was so very unremarkable. Go out and get your copy today!!!

I just might scream. Your display name should be at least 2 characters long. It also creates a space around itself.

Appreciated that the mother was still alive.

To the astonishment of all concerned, Dominic took to the sea like a sailor born. Would I recommend this book?
