Beauty a retelling of the story of beauty and the beast was first published in 1978 written by american childrens book author robin mckinley it was her first book retelling the classic french fairy tale la belle et la bete the book was the 1998 phoenix award honor book. This much loved retelling of the classic french tale beauty and the beast elicits the familiar magical charm but is more believable and complex than the traditional story in this version beauty is not as beautiful as her older sisters who are both lovely and kind. So traditional in fact that i first was a little irritated with it and thought it was a rip off of disneys beauty and the beast until i realized that robin mckinleys version of the story came decades before the movie decades. Beauty a marvelous retelling of beauty and the beast is divided into three parts the first tells of her and her families sumptuous life in the city with her father as the head of household with an 18 room mansion complete with servants.
