Overview

Beauty and the Beast: Lost in a Book by Jennifer Donnelly, Disney Storybook Art Team

Smart, bookish Belle, a captive in the Beast's castle, has become accustomed to her new home and has befriended its inhabitants. When she comes upon Nevermore, an enchanted book unlike anything else she has seen in the castle, Belle finds herself pulled into its pages and transported to a world of glamour and intrigue. The adventures Belle has always imagined, the dreams she was forced to give up when she became a prisoner, seem within reach again.

The charming and mysterious characters Belle meets within the pages of Nevermore offer her glamorous conversation, a life of dazzling Parisian luxury, and even a reunion she never thought possible. Here Belle can have everything she ever wished for. But what about her friends in the Beast's castle? Can Belle trust her new companions inside the pages of Nevermore? Is Nevermore's world even real? Belle must uncover the truth about the book, before she loses herself in it forever.

This book is both charming and enchanting, with the right touch of magic, suspense, and wonder. It is not too whimsical, nor is it too serious or boring. The story emphasizes the importance of love, family, and friendship. The interactions between Belle and the Beast were adorable and touching, and my heart melted and my stomach fluttered many times. I enjoyed the bickering between Lumiere and Cogsworth, as well as Mrs. Pott's wisdom - and Chip is just too cute! I highly recommend this book to those who love Beauty and the Beast, writing, reading, or all three. I loved this book and I definitely got lost in it! (Especially since I finished it within a day. I just couldn't put it down.)

Beauty and the Beast: Lost in a book truely delivered just what it promised - to assist in losing oneself in the story. This tale had all the ‘Feels’ from the Disney film and then some. I loved it. All the principle players were represented in the book with an added element of a magical book that literally is a doorway into another world - a world that appears beautiful and amazing but my in fact be an elaborate illusion designed to destroy not only Belle but curse her new friends and the Beast to stay in their enchanted forms forever. The ending was not quite as strong in parts than I would have liked as the two protagonists who had been staging the whole alternative world - Death and Love could have had a better resolution but it was still an interesting scenario and some of the dialogue between the sisters was indeed quote worthy. All in all a delightful story which added without undoing the story we all know and love.

If you don't know by now, I have a slight (ok, rather HUGE) obsession with The Beauty and the Beast. But this wasn't always the case. Not until Emma Watson and Dan Stevens graced the screen with their portrayal of the timeless classic in Disney's Live Action Release in March 2017. This new obsession launched a frantic search of books related to Belle and the Beast. Thanks to my bookish friends having an equal obsession...I came across quite a few titles. Marissa found Lost in a Book at her local bookstore....I got on Amazon and ordered it that night I think. However, I had to force myself to wait to read it because of prior commitments. Lost in a Book is an original story set during the time Belle is a prisoner of the Beast. He gives her the library (My hubby built me a reading nook...that's pretty close to a library...) in the beginning of the book, and the rest of the story is all about the adventures (or misadventures) she has in the magical book, Nevermore, that she discovers while cleaning up the library. One of the themes of this story explains really well that getting lost in a book is good. An escape can be needed on occasion. However, don't take for granted the reality you have been given. Even if life is hard, and your path is heading in a direction that you weren't expecting...It is important to see the beauty in the life around you. Because even if it may be hard, it is REAL. I purchased a print copy of Lost in a Book from Amazon. I was not required to write a review. All opinions expressed are mine alone.
