Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Coxe (Big Egg) and Silin-Palmer (The Nightingale and the Wind) bring humor, if not air-tight internal logic, to this full-dress retelling of a familiar tale. Here, a rabbit merchant down on his luck strikes a deal with a rose-keeping Beast. The characters' brisk repartee keeps the story moving at a pace worthy of any scurrying rabbit. For example, after the Beast asks the merchant to bring him one of his daughters, the distraught man wails, "If you must devour someone, devour me," to which the quick-witted Beast replies, "If I were merely hungry, I would have eaten you already." The language, the length of the text and the type size are most appropriate for older readers. Silin-Palmer's sprawling, elaborate paintings command attention with their elegant floral borders and bountiful details: lavish costumes, lush gardens dominated by rabbit-shaped topiary, frog courtiers. The artist's choice of a benign-looking bull terrier to play the role of Beast seems at odds with the text ("His eyes were angry, his teeth were sharp, and his claws were long," writes Coxe at the Beast's first appearance); how is this dog more "beastly" than a rabbit? Readers who don't want to look too closely at the story's workings, however, can content themselves with its pretty trappings. Ages 5-8. (Feb.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
In this delightful retelling of Madame de Beaumont's Beauty and the Beast, Coxe has changed Beauty into Bunny, a beautiful, personified white rabbit, and the beast into a bull terrier, fierce enough but not frightening. Her retelling is consistent with the original tale, with the exception of the characters. The illustrations, however, make the book. Silin-Palmer has created such elegant detail in the rich paintings that children and adults alike will be enthralled with the book. One could pore over the illustrations for hours and not find all of the hidden creatures that Silin-Porter includes in each painting. This book will engage readers and admirers of art of all ages. It is one that should be included in fairy tale collections in both public and school libraries. 2001, Random House, . Ages 5 up. Reviewer: J. B. Petty
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-A well-written retelling of a French fairy tale starring a family of white rabbits with a bull terrier as the Beast, all clothed in stunning period costumes. The illustrations rise to the finest fairy-tale tradition of lavishness and opulence. The text is printed on paper that looks like parchment and is surrounded by bouquets or other elaborate borders. Painted in luscious, velvety hues, the double-page spreads shine with lifelike flowers, fine garments, and imperial architecture. From the twinkling of fairies to cloaks caught in flight to the rushing of a creek, each page vibrates with the exuberance of movement. Older children will enjoy reading the story and poring over the myriad details in the artwork. The tale also reads aloud well. Marianna Mayer's Beauty and the Beast (Aladdin, 1987) offers a more traditional retelling and has stunning human images. Laurence Yep's The Dragon Prince: A Chinese Beauty and the Beast Tale (HarperCollins, 1997) offers a unique version of this classic story.-Linda M.
