Description

Product Description

Originally published in 1989, this luminous reissue of an all-time favorite fairy tale will attract an even wider audience with its romantic new jacket and a shortened text.

Exquisite illustrations of Beauty and her mysterious suitor, the Beast, are set in a magical castle where animals dressed in period costumes serve them. Woven into glorious tapestries throughout are hidden clues hinting at the Beast''s secrets, setting Brett''s version apart from others.

Review

"A brilliant marriage of artwork and text." - Publisher''s Weekly

About the Author

With over thirty four million books in print, Jan Brett is one of the nation''s foremost author illustrators of children''s books. Jan lives in a seacoast town in Massachusetts, close to where she grew up. During the summer her family moves to a home in the Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts.

As a child, Jan Brett decided to be an illustrator and spent many hours reading and drawing. She says, "I remember the special quiet of rainy days when I felt that I could enter the pages of my beautiful picture books. Now I try to recreate that feeling of believing that the imaginary place I''m drawing really exists. The detail in my work helps to convince me, and I hope others as well, that such places might be real."

As a student at the Boston Museum School, she spent hours in the Museum of Fine Arts. "It was overwhelming to see the room-size landscapes and towering stone sculptures, and then moments later to refocus on delicately embroidered kimonos and ancient porcelain," she says. "I''m delighted and surprised when fragments of these beautiful images come back to me in my painting."

Travel is also a constant inspiration. Together with her husband, Joe Hearne, who is a member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Jan visits many different countries where she researches the architecture and costumes that appear in her work. "From cave paintings to Norwegian sleighs, to Japanese gardens, I study the traditions of the many countries I visit and use them as a starting point for my children''s books."

I am incredulous that such a consistently wonderful artist, who has brought so much pleasure to children and the people who read to or with them, has apparently never won the coveted Caldecott Award. In this lovely volume, she again produces a gorgeous work filled with charming detail. The text is a version of this folk tale with which I was not familiar, and I enjoyed reading it, as I am sure youngsters will. I found it less frightening than some other accounts of what transpired between Beauty and her Beast. Enthusiastically recommended.

Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorite fairy tales and this particular book is a nice alternative to the Disney version. I also appreciate that the beast isn''t especially "scary" and looks more like an animal rather than a mutant. It''s a children book that I actually enjoy reading with my girls. And although there is a lot of text on each page, both my 2 YO and my 4 YO are able to maintain interest--mainly because of the beautiful illustrations.

Beautifully illustrated
Reviewed in the United States on May 28, 2015
The illustrations in this book are just beautiful and there is one on every page. Costuming is historically correct and they are beautifully rendered. The text is quite simplistic though and definitely for the younger child 5 to 8. Read it in 15 minutes of less.

Jan Brett''s books are always richly and beautifully illustrated. There is always a little extra "story" in the illustrations. In this one, you will be watching the animal servants throughout the book. Pay close attention to the tapestries in the background to see who these animals really are. My favorite are the monkeys. This version is very much like the original French fairy fale, and is well told.
