It's a pretty straight forward Beauty and the Beast story but it's told beautifully. Like my sister, I wonder who at Disney read this book before the cartoon came out (there were a few striking similarities that may just be coincidence but I doubt it). I wanted a little more time at the end; once it started to wrap up it seemed over too quickly. I do like that her older sisters (who are traditionally spoiled brats) were sweet, and I love Ger.
