Beauty and the Beast Reviews
I had been waiting for this book all year! When it arrived I was extremely happy. Kinuko Craft and Mahlon Craft have done a fantastic job of preserving "Beauty and the Beast" for future generations! I have been a fan of Craft ever since I was a child and her illustrations and the author's writing transport readers right into the realm of beautiful storytelling. It's good, clean and all around fantastic. Words cannot describe how wonderful this is!
A beautifully detailed retelling with exquisite art utilizing transparency techniques, fascinating images, and several double page spreads. The story flows and reads like poetry. The illustrations draw the viewer into this world with endless detail and compelling composition, so each illustration becomes its own story. Beauty & the Beast is a dreamlike story of love... for daughter and father, and Beauty and her beast...
If you have not yet discovered the award winning team of Kinuko and Mahlon Craft, do yourself a favor and check out their gorgeous books. Each one is lavishly depicted. The oil over watercolor in their version of Beauty and the Beast is breathtaking. I cannot wait to share these books with my granddaughters. If they're anything like me, they'll be enjoying these beauties for years to come. A wonderful retelling that will capture your heart.
I love these books! My 8 year old granddaughter gets lost in the stories and the illustrations. She'll find a quiet space and read through each book until done. The illustrations depict the stories in wondrous detail. These are NOT Disney renditions, but what Disney wishes it could convey. I plan to buy all the Craft illustrated (written) books.
The artwork in this book is glorious! I recognised the artist because of the lovely puzzles I have seen of her work in stores. I bought it just for the art but the story is wonderful as well. It would be difficult to dislike this book if you are a fan of art, storytelling and beauty and the beast.
I love Craft's work and was glad to discover a new book from her. Her usual exceptional painting is here displayed and accompanies the text perfectly.
Any book that is illustrated by K. Y. Craft , written by her and or Mahlon Craft is an absolute treasure. Beautiful stories and illustrations! Every young person's personal library should include these wonderful books.
Beautiful illustrations. However, the "retelling" is slightly different from the original story.
