Last week I read the Beauty and the Beast book that was released to coinside with the movie release earlier this year. At first I thought do I really want to read this. Since it was adapted from the movie and I already saw the movie I thought for sure it would be useless. But I am glad I did. I found it to be a nice companion to the movie. I thought it helped pick up on some of the little things that might have been missed in the movie. Especially since this movie is different than the cartoon everyone is used to. I would recommend reading it if you haven’t seen the movie yet or even if you have. It’a an easy fast read so it really wouldn’t take much time.
