Book review: Beauty: A Retelling of the Story of Beauty and the Beast (9780060753108)

0060753102.01._SX140_SY224_SCLZZZZZZZ_Beauty’s life is good, she lives with her father, her two sisters and her brother-in-law in a small cottage.  However, when her father comes back from a trip, she finds that he has to sacrifice a daughter to the Beast that lives in the enchanted castle.  Beauty sacrifices her life for her father’s life and stays with the Beast and the mysterious moving furniture, candles and teacups.

This is the second book I have read by Robin McKinley and she doesn’t disappoint me.  I love the Beauty and the Beast fairy tale and this version is very well written and enchanting.  I can see that Disney also liked this version and borrowed some of her ideas.  A fun read!
