In this spoof on a classic fairy tale, village hero Gautier must get past his recent spurning by local heartthrob Robinette, who has gone missing from their French mountain town. When newcomer Danielle arrives in the middle of the night, claiming to have been attacked in the woods by a giant beast, Gautier sets out to find it and put it down...only to learn that Robinette is involved, and that his love for her might not be true.
This is a great short story on a classic tale. A selfish, self centered man is your unlikely hero. It is a fun story that the whole family can listen to.
Bradley's retelling of Beauty & the Beast is more exciting, adventurous, and captivating than the original. In fact, if Disney or anyone else wants to make another movie, this is the book they should use this book as the source of their next movie. I hope Bradley reimagines more classic fairytales in the future.
Exceedingly well written and I loved the blending of old characters and new, as well as the new interpretation of an old story everyone loves. The narration was wonderful and very easy on the ears! I would completely recommend this for everyone.
