Illustrated by Gary Blythe
Gregor picks one perfect rose from the sumptuous gardens of the Beast's palace. It is a present for his youngest daughter, Beauty. But for the theft of the rose Gregor has to pay a high price: he must give up his beloved daughter and send her to live with the grotesque Beast.
Once in Beast's castle, Beauty waits in fear every day to encounter the dreadful creature. But the weeks go by, and the Beast does not show himself. Where is he? What does he look like? And what does he want from her?
Geraldine McCaughrean's exquisite, dramatic retelling of this best-loved tale is superbly complemented by Gary Blythe's magnificent oil paintings.
