Beauty and the Beast

H. Chuku Lee (A) and Pat Cummings (ILT)

List Price: $17.99 (Hardcover - Fairy Tale 2014)

Description: In this remarkable retelling of Beauty and the Beast, award-winning illustrator Pat Cummings creates an enchanted fairy-tale world flavored by the art, architecture, and culture of West Africa, while writer H. Chuku Lee stays true to the story of this beloved classic. With breathtaking palatial settings inspired by the Dogon tribe of Mali and dazzling costumes reminiscent of the clothing seen on Cummings's own trip to Africa, Beauty and the Beast becomes so much more than just a storyäóîit's a visual and cultural experience.

When her father is taken prisoner by a fearsome Beast, Beauty begs the captor to take her instead. The Beast agrees, locking her away in his palace. Though he will give her whatever her heart desiresäóîjewels, gowns, her own living quartersäóîshe is forbidden to leave. Over time, however, Beauty sees the gentler side of the Beast, and an unexpected bond forms.But will it be strong enough to break a curse that threatens the Beast's life?

Ashay says, "This is a popular Fairy Tale. It's nice to see it presented from a West African perspective and black characters. And I love Pat Cummings artistic style. I think girls will enjoy this book. Great for the library and classroom curriculum. Gotta have it!"
