Beauty and the Beast (Illustrated)

Jeanne-Marie Le Prince de Beaumont

Price: FREE

Beauty and the Beast has always been one of my favorite fairy tales. This is the original version, not the Disney one. The illustrations are spectacular, also. Just wonderful!

C. Reynolds

Beauty and the Beast is a traditional fairy tale. Its first published version was written by French author Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve in the middle 18th century. It was a novel-length story intended for adult readers and addressing the issues of the marriage system of the day in which women had no right to choose their husband or to refuse to marry.
The best-known version of the tale appeared sixteen years later. Jeanne-Marie Le Prince de Beaumont simplified and shortened the Villeneuve’s work and published it in a magazine for young ladies. The new abridged version became more successful, and Madame de Beaumont is regarded now as the author of the classic story.
This edition includes remarkable illustrations by Walter Crane. Walter Crane was a prominent book illustrator of the 19th century. In cooperation with Edmund Evans, he designed picture books printed in color, which became the most popular children’s books at the time thanks to their high level of craftsmanship and low price.
Crane’s work set the standards of taste in the Victorian children’s book industry and earned him the reputation of “the father of the illustrated children’s book”.

My 4 year old son really liked this book! So did my 10 year old daughter. They both thought that counting until it’s morning time was a Great idea! Neither of them like to go to bed and always want to be awake playing and around me and daddy. This book was very cute and gave us all a good idea to get the kids to go to sleep.
