Beauty and The Beast & Other Stories Book Review By 8th Grader Maddie May 9, 2018

BB

Beauty & the Beast and Other Stories by Sarah Hines Stephens has three different stories about the same problem. In each of the stories, the princes have spells set upon them that they have to break to be human again.

Beauty as a child was very simply impressed by the littlest things. Her sisters, on the other hand, wanted everything handed to them. The merchant lost his money and the family was forced to move out of their mansion and into a little cabin. The merchant traveled out one night and didn’t make it home and was sure he would freeze before he got home. So he saw a mansion and decided what he saw was a weird creature . He asked the creature if he could stay the night. The creature would let him stay for something in return. The merchant will allow his daughter to marry the creature. Beauty didn’t like the giant but when he turned into a prince, she fell in love with him.

I think this book keeps you engaged and doesn’t stress you out over number of pages. I like the font of the words.

    Tale as old as time
    True as it can be
    Barely even friends
    Then somebody bends
    Unexpectedly
    Just a little change
    Small to say the least
    Both a little scared
    Neither one prepared
    Beauty and the beast
    Ever just the same
    Ever a surprise
    Ever as before and ever just as sure as the sun will rise
    Ever just the same
    Ever a surprise
    Ever as before
    Ever just as sure
    As the sun will rise
    Tale as old as time
    Tune as old as song
    Bitter sweet and strange
    Finding you can change
    Learning you were wrong
    Certain as the sun
    (Certain as the sun)
    Rising in the east
    (Tale as old as time)
    Song as old as rhyme
    Beauty and the beast
    Tale as old as time
    (Song as old as rhyme)
    Beauty and the beast
