Usborne Young Reading: Beauty and the Beast

“I took a rose from the garden of a monstrous beast and he has sworn to kill me…”

When Beauty reads this letter from her father, she bravely rides to the Beast’s enchanted castle in his place. The Beast is truly terrifying, but as Beauty soon realises, nothing is quite as it seems.. Told in simple, lively language and paired with an audio story CD, this fresh, vivid retelling of a favourite fairy tale is a pure delight.
