Comments about Beauty and the Beast:
I ticked older readers for this one too because I think it is amusing for older readers as well as younger ones.
The illustrations are wonderful, and the story adds hints of originality to a classic fairy tale.
Stylishly illustrated by Sarah Gibb. -- Sunday Express 20121216 Some picture books are also works of art and Sarah Gibb's elegant illustrations, and particularly her silhouettes, make this an example. Jones returns to the traditional 18th Century tale for this stunning publication. -- Newcastle Journal 20121222 Sarah Gibb's cleverly contrasting illustrations make this version of the fairytale classic one to treasure. -- Cork Evening Echo 20121228
