About the Book

Beauty and the Beast

Written by Cynthia Rylant and illustrated by Meg Park.

Beauty asks for little, finding joy in simple things and the company of her father. The Beast, shut away from the world in his great stone castle, knows only loneliness. Brought together by a stolen rose, each finds that love may call for sacrifice, but true love can bloom in even the darkest places.
Newbery medalist Cynthia Rylant tells a classic tale of bravery and transformation with stunning, lyrical prose, accompanied by Meg Park's soft yet vibrant illustrations. This new picturebook makes a beautiful keepsake that children will pore over for years to come.
