#BookReview: Dark Tales: Beauty and the Beast: A Modern Retelling by Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve, Pete Katz #Giveaway

About the Book:

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

This modern retelling of the classic fairy tale of Beauty and the Beast is told here in a graphic novel format. 


More than 100 pages of illustrated action, adventure, and love teach a lesson to look beyond the surface and learn to love what’s underneath. 

A merchant takes shelter in a castle during a thunderstorm and ends up striking a bargain with its beastly master. 

His youngest daughter, Beauty, returns to the castle to live in exchange for a restoration of the family’s previous wealth. 

Beauty befriends Beast, but longs to see her family again. 

He allows her to visit her former home, but when she doesn’t return at the designated time, consequences ensue.
