Beauty and the Beast is a tale for all ages. Even the littlest fairy tale lovers deserve a good story! Or grown-ups who are still kids at heart! 

I made this video back in 2015 for Fairy Tale Fortnight, and was reminded about it this week when I vlogged three new B&B-themed videos. I really love the art in the Ursula Jones/Sarah Gibb version, too, though, and dragged this video out of hiding to share with you!

I mean, look at some of this stunning design work with silhouette when buildings are shown:

It's the second of three books I talk about in the video. If you just want to see the info about BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, skip to 1:11 and you'll bypass me talking about the first book! ^.~
