    sigh It was so close, and yet no It was good, i guess, but it was clear that Cameron Dokey had read Robin McKinley s beauty dozens of times There is no rose I liked that The whole love tree with a secret inside of it that only belle,the fabulous wood carver, can unlock this was new and interesting And, phew, the part in the boat read it, you ll like that part was re

    I had mixed feelings about this book For the first 140 pages, I was getting into the story I enjoyed the good writing, the descriptions, I even liked all the characters This was a nice version of Beauty and the Beast where Belle still had both her parents and even her sisters are kind and good Nothing was really happening in the story We were watching the main charac

    I am totally in like with this series Why do I go all mushy inside every time I read one I guess I carry way too much estrogen but I m not ashamed No way Part of the reasons fairy tales have been around so long is because they show us something about what the heart can do.Belle doesn t fit her name At least she doesn t feel like she does when she is next to her gorgeo

    Bleh Just another insipid retelling of Beauty and the Beast that reads amateurishly plotted characterised, with the additional aggravation that Dokey is unashamedly trying to reproduce Robin McKinley s Beauty, without a drop of the latter s charm Don t bother with this copycat book, is what I d recommend to those checking it up to see if it might be their thing You ll be

    This is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast And by retelling I mean that the father isn t dumb, and the author replaces the stolen rose with an accidentally fallen tree branch.I feel like this is the book you give to middle school high school students to teach them about patterns and oppositions in writing No subtlety Also, it has the classic mistake that most MODERN YA au

    A very basic retelling of Beauty and the Beast It felt like the Cliff Notes version, skimming over the whole falling in love thing Could ve done that part better.
