Happily ever after: Beauty and the Beast by Alex Field

cover image

Ill. by Helen Magisson. New Frontier Publishing, 2017. ISBN 9781925059809
This is a great version of a traditional story and describes a young girl overcoming her fear to protect her father. The realisation of what is inside is far more important than what the outside looks like.
The illustrations draw you in, and the butterflies are a great touch.
A classic story is represented in a way that appeals to most age groups.
