Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Elizabeth Fronk
The prince from “Beauty and the Beast” tells his side of the story. He wants to set the record straight so that people know the truth about him instead of the traditional version about a spoiled boy. As Prince Elmer explains it, he was auditioning for a play to overcome shyness and, as he was practicing his part, the old woman turned him into a beast. He continues to practice his acting in order to pass the time. One night, an elderly man comes by and the beast is glad to have company. So that the man will return again, the beast pretends to threaten him. The elderly man returns and brings along his daughter. The beast falls in love at first sight; for Beauty, it takes some time. The prince and Beauty share a love for the theater. She wants to leave but again, the beast relies on acting skills to get her to return. When she does, she admits her love for him and the spell is broken. While this story’s cartoon-like illustrations provide some humor, all of the enchantment, drama and wit from the original folktale are gone. Second and third grade boys might find this a humorous alternative to classic folktales; Scieska’s The Frog Prince, Continued or Jane Yolen’s Sleeping Ugly are better options for alternative-perspective tales. Reviewer: Elizabeth Fronk AGERANGE: Ages 6 to 9.
