Fairy Tales: Beauty and the Beast by Jessica Gunderson Book Review

Disclaimer : I received a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review !

This is such a cute early reading book. It' one step up from picture books and an adorable introduction to simplified fairy tales.
I really enjoyed the art style for the most part, it was very adorable though a little too short in my opinion. I believe they could've added beautiful illustrations to really captivate a younger reader and make them want to "see the pretty pictures" again, again and again.
Other than that my only other complaint would be the lack of storytelling, I understand minimizing it but in certain instances like when the sisters want her fortune, the authors could've added what happens in between that and the beast falling sick. It was cute but not captivating, nice but not anything new. Nothing made me think
if I have to buy a beauty and the beast retelling for a kid "This" is what I would choose. Unfortunately,
not a version I will remember with a particular fondness.
Otherwise a cute intro to comics/graphic novel for any children aged between 5-7 years old or children just learning to read on their own.

2.5/5 stars
