PreS-Gr 5-Sabuda gives this classic tale of reversals of fortune and true love found a lovely and lavish retelling. The story unfolds with detail and drama in numerous small-size booklets adorned by illustrations and petite pop-ups. The 3-D sculptures featured center stage include an intricate rendition of the Beast's nook-and-crannied castle, a face-to-face close-up of his ferocious visage, and a bird's-eye view of an elegantly laid-out meal shared with Beauty. Stylishly attired in his gentleman's clothing, the Beast boasts fierce-looking features, sharpened-to-a-point golden-hued teeth and claws, and a spectacular scale-covered tail. The shimmering colors, thick black lines, and use of patterned shapes suggest stained glass, a fitting style for the tale's regal pacing and formal tone. The visual effects are innovative (e.g., readers pull up and peek into accordion-style castle corridors that convey a sense of depth) while also incorporating the story's themes (rose motifs appear throughout). It is fitting that the climactic spread features Beauty embracing the Beast beneath a trellis of blooming garden greenery (kids will have to open the final fold-out to see her beloved in his human form). A fine choice for display and in-library perusal.-Joy Fleishhacker, School Library Journal (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
