The Beauty And The Beast (Collector's Edition) by Gabrielle-Suzanna Barbot de Villenueve & MinaLima


Generations of readers have been bewitched by the epic love story by Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve of a beautiful young girl who falls in love with a ferocious beast.  Now, the classic fairy tale is reimagined in this deluxe unabridged collector's edition.  With all new lush illustrations and exclusive interactive elements from the award winning design studio MinaLima, this charming book invites you to explore the Beast's enchanted palace with Beauty and a host of magical creatures.

The Beauty and the Beast is packed with specially commissioned, full-colour artwork and nine exclusive interactive features, including a fold-out map of the rich French city where the Merchant (Beauty’s father) and his family reside, a fold out that reveals the interior of the Beast’s enchanted palace, a series of flaps that open to reveal different entertainments available to Beauty in the Beast’s palace and a dial of the ring Beauty turns on her finger to return to the Beast.
