Beauty and the Beast

Lovely Beauty, dry your eyes.
In this place no danger lies,
For when you have a wish or need,
You have only to ask and I must heed.

A Beauty, beloved for her spirit,
a Beast, with a plea for kindness,
the spell that encircles them,
and the kind of magic only an honest heart may bring . . .

The timeless tale of Beauty and the Beast is captured with breathtaking style in this lavishly illustrated story by the award-winning team of Mahlon and Kinuko Craft. In a glorious castle set deep in a mysterious forest, the tale of a father’s fate-filled promise and a daughter’s courage unfolds.

In the spirit of the Crafts’ acclaimed fairy-tale retellings of Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty, this story, themed on Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont’s version first published in France in 1756, is filled with sumptuous paintings and ornamental detail. The artist has created wonderfully rich, imaginative scenes.

The beloved classic is brilliantly brought to life in this lush picture book to be cherished at story time again and again.

Portrait

Mahlon F. Craft came to writing late in life. Beauty and the Beast is his second published work as an author. He is a graduate of the Art Academy of Cincinnati. After completing postgraduate studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in the 1960s, he worked as an award-winning art director and graphic designer. Beauty and the Beast is the ninth picture book of his design.

Kinuko Y. Craft has won more than one hundred graphic-arts awards, including five gold medals from the Society of Illustrators. In 2008, she was inducted into their Hall of Fame. Her art has been in print for almost half a century, appearing on the covers of such prestigious publications as Time and Newsweek. Her illustrated books on Greek myths and of classic fairy tales have been published in the United States and other English-language countries, and in Europe, China, and Korea. Says Kirkus Reviews, "Every detail of her work—the flowers by a spring, a red cloak unfurled against a blue sky, moonlight on a tiger's back—is beautifully rendered." Beauty and the Beast is her ninth illustrated book.
