    The magical story of Disney's Beauty and the Beast captured in print ready for readers young and old to take a journey with Belle. Unfortunately, although the book is marketed at the book of the film it does not contain any stills from the new live-action film - whilst not essential it would have added a little something extra to the book.

    Fairy tale as old as time, enchanted, charming and sparkling. After seeing the movie of Beauty & the Beast I found this beautiful book edition on Book Depository and yes, you are right, it is mine now. :) It is a fairy tale love classic for all time, indeed.

    Beauty and the Beast is the best book ever. Especially since Belle is my favorite Disney character. Usually I do not like fiction books but this one is the best one I have read. I love that Belle loves to be different and doesn't let anyone bring her down. Nobody likes when Belle reads. But that should be different. That is what I really love about her.But then that all changes living in that town. Her dad goes missing. She goes and trys to find him. She finds him in the castle and she finds the Beauty and the Beast is the best book ever. Especially since Belle is my favorite Disney character.

She finds him in the castle and she finds the beast. The Beast and her start to get along then they start to fall in love. I think that this story is reakky amazing especially since they first dont like each other and then they fall in love. To me it is romantic.

    I know this is a novelization of a movie, but it still is quite good. Interesting to see how the parts of this story are worked together. Sorry that the author of the film and book of the Broadway musical as well as the lyricist are not given any credit although this is clearly based on their work. Odd use of some sophisticated vocabulary and some contemporary words and phrases. I'm doing research for a presentation on the story and its various iterations and this was very enjoyable.

    Beauty and the Beast, Book of the film. It lived up to it's name and so much more! I really enjoyed the way this writer included little things from the animated film plus little details here and there that were not from either film but expanded on the story. I haven't read this story before - only watched it, and I loved the way that this was written and how you got inside the mind of most of the characters and saw how they saw a situation. It made me fall in love with this story all over again. Beauty and the Beast, Book of the film. It lived up to it's name and so much more!

    I'm not like most people. I didn't suddenly become a "obsessed" just because of the live action remake. My obsession developed years ago. I know the entire movie word for word, I watch it at least twice a week and I know all the songs, so you could say I'm a die hard fan. And I enjoyed this book. Well, kinda. The story was amazing. The writing? Crap. It was like they picked a random person off the street and said "yo write this book" and that person was like "wut? I missed all me English classes I'm not like most people.

    Beautifully written, with a perfect insight into what the characters are feeling which we can't experience from the film. The tale has always been a great one, especially because of the important message, but this version makes it an extra special experience.

    A very good book, some of the writing and descriptions seemed a bit simple though, a younger audience may enjoy more than I did

    A tale as old as time...and a tale told so beautifully and with so much detail. The prince is hosting an elaborate ball at his luxurious castle one stormy night when an old hag shows up on his doorstep seeking shelter from the storm. The prince refuses the hags rose that she offered to the prince, she gives him one last chance to accept the rose and when he refuses again she reveals herself an enchantress, and as punishment for the princes hostile and rude behaviour she curses his castle and all A tale as old as time...and a tale told so beautifully and with so much detail. The prince is hosting an elaborate ball at his luxurious castle one stormy night when an old hag shows up on his doorstep seeking shelter from the storm. The prince refuses the hags rose that she offered to the prince, she gives him one last chance to accept the rose and when he refuses again she reveals herself an enchantress, and as punishment for the princes hostile and rude behaviour she curses his castle and all the residents within it. The Prince turns into a beast, and all his maids and servants turn into furniture. If someone can learn to love the beast before the last petal falls off the enchanted rose the curse will be broken. Belle was a lovely character to read about, her love of books is very apparent, and she longs to be free of her small village and the small minded people who live there. I saw this movie in theatres and I loved it and bought the DVD. The book is exactly like the movie, in the book they obviously don’t break into dance and song like they do in the movie. A wonderful and very colourful read, I Thoroughly enjoyed all of the characters, especially Lumiere and FrouFrou the dog that was a piano bench. A beautiful classic read.

    I loved the Walt Disney Beauty and the Beast it's an all time classic. This story took me by surprise of how much detail went into the story that doesn't show in the movie, it made sense why the Beast was cold hearted and selfish and Gaston a patronizing show off in the story. I really enjoyed the story, the characters especially Belle, Ms Pots, Lumiere and the Beast. Overall it's 4 stars for me because I really enjoyed it.

    The book was very well written though I think a younger audience might enjoy it more. Still worth the read for anyone who liked/saw the movie.

    This was a nice read (although I definitely wouldn't have bothered if it hadn't come free with the DVD.) Rating is for the movie really. Love it. This was a nice read (although I definitely wouldn't have bothered if it hadn't come free with the DVD.) Rating is for the movie really. Love it.

    I loved every moment of this book, just like I did with the movie, I have always loved beauty and the beast while growing up and now I had the chance to be apart of the book version, made me happy.

    I picked up this book because it was reduced to 99p (I know I’m a sucker for a bargain), I love the film and just wanted it on my shelves. However I realized once I got home that I didn’t really have any intentions of reading it, then The Reading Rush came along and I had a last minute TBR change and as this book is so short and I know the story so well I actually got around to reading this (shock horror!). I didn’t really know what to expect from this as I read the original Beauty and the Beast I picked up this book because it was reduced to 99p (I know I’m a sucker for a bargain), I love the film and just wanted it on my shelves.

I didn’t really know what to expect from this as I read the original Beauty and the Beast earlier in the year and am ashamed to say I didn’t love it as much as I thought (see my full review here) so I was a little apprehensive about going into this If you didn’t already know last year Disney released a live action Beauty and The Beast, this is the book of that film. It is nothing alike the original book however everything that happens in the film happens in the book. Belle (beauty) rescues her father from a hideous beast and vows to take his place as a prisoner in the castle forever. However the castle is enchanted and everyone in it may rely on Belle to break the curse – or they are doomed to remain as they are for all time So this book is so much better than the original (sorry), Disney have done an amazing job with both films (even though the animated original one will forever be my favourite) and this book definitely reflects that. I loved the descriptions and after watching the film it was nice to be able to picture it in my mind exactly as it happened in the film. It definitely felt magical and certainly nothing was lost between the book and the film, I loved every part and could not get enough. I flew through it, I could hear the characters voices in my head and it felt like I was truly part of the story. This is a tale that I have grown up with, I’ve watched the film so many times and to now be able to read it but with the same plot as the film (the original book is quite different) was amazing. I would say if you are a fan of the films (either one) then definitely pick this book up, it is so magical and you can read through the plot at your own pace which I think makes it so much more vivid but you also have the film imagery to fall back on. If you have never seen any of the films but are interested in enchanted castles etc. then I would definitely recommend this. It is really fast paced, incredibly magical and just an overall lovely story. Don’t be put off by the intended age, this book is perfect for any age, it can be enjoyed by all. Definitely pick it up!

    The book Beauty and the Beast by Disney is such an exciting suspenseful book. I love this book because it talks about a girl named Belle who lives in a small provincial town of Villeneuve. Belle is a very wise, courageous,and determined young girl. In the book her beloved father gets taken away by the Beast and Belle stops at nothing to try and get her father back. She arrives at this big castle and knows she has to face the beast to get her dad back.

Everyone in her village tried their best to warn her about the Beast but she didn’t have a care in the world but to get her dad. Once she got to know the Beast she realized that he wasn't as bad as everyone was making him out to be. She got her father back and fell in love with the Beast. Meanwhile, a man named Gaston who wanted to marry Belle tried to kill the Beast in a sword fight but Gaston almost killed the Beast when Belle had watched the whole fight and saw that her true love was dying and gave him a kiss on the lips. The hideous Beast turned into a beautiful Prince. Belle and the prince lived Happily Ever After. I recommend this book to 5th-7th graders. This story shows how ugly things can be beautiful. How everybody has love in their heart.

    A lovely telling of the film. If you just want to read the film, then this is the book for you. If you wanted more details, more character thoughts, extras, then you'll be disappointed. I was hoping for added extras, so that's why it only has three stars. If you fancy a Beauty and the Beast story that gives more, there are other Disney options out there (and plenty of non Disney) I preferred Tale As Old As Time, which I read just before the remade film came out.

    For those of you that don't know the story. Beauty and the Beast is a beautiful story of Belle - a book loving dreamer, who wants to live the adventures she reads about in her books, and the Beast who lives in an enchanted castle, grumpy and fearsome and won't let anyone in. The book is well written and more, it includes parts and little bits that wasn't in the live action version.

    This book was so enjoyable and I had a great time reading it! I put the Beauty and the Beast soundtrack on alongside it and I really enjoyed being immersed into this story! It was definitely a 4.5 star read. This story is so nostalgic and my favourite fairytale. This book was beautifully written, very descriptive and easy to read. You could tell it was based from the film as everything was just so easy to visual.

    I really enjoyed this classic storyline, which was as expected after watching the movies and growing up listening to the story, however I don’t think this was the best piece of writing/literature as far as books go. This book would have been 5 stars for me if the writing had been better, as I feel like the storyline only makes up for so much considering it’s a book based on a film/other stories and fairytales.

    I love Beauty and The Beast! 🌹 I think it’s my most favorite Disney film ever (both animated and live-action) so it is quite a given that I gobble up every book 📖 about it, whether it’s a retelling, a twisted tale or even the book of the movie. There’s something that fills my heart whenever this tale is involved that I cannot find while reading other books. It truly is a pleasure to read a tale as old as time 😊 #TheBookwormPrincess👸🏻

    You can never go wrong with the classic tale as old as time! This short Disney novel follows the story as it is told in the live film version. It was as entertaining to read as it was to see the film. Although I would have, like always, enjoyed if there was a little more back story given. Still a pleasant read.

    This is one of the most best books that I read that was made into a movie and I loved it and it's one of the best live action films ever made by the Walt Disney Company. And some time in the future I will read it many times over.

    Beauty and the Beast is one of my favourite Disney movies and Belle is my favourite Disney Princess, so of course when I saw this book I had to pick it up and read it. It was a quick, fun read and was exactly like the film.
