A devoted daughter bravely takes her father's place as the prisoner of a beastly lord, little guessing there is much more to her frightening host than it first seems. Korean-born artist Seo Kim captures not just the magical qualities but also the changing moods of their timeless story in this contemporary telling, published in Australia for readers and listeners up to 7. Mysterious, even a touch melancholy at times, this Beauty and the Beast has no villains (even Beauty's sisters, depicted as vain and even spiteful in other tellings, are no worse than a bit self-absorbed here), as the story focuses on seeing beyond appearances to find the beauty of a soul.
