Back in January, my husband gave my one of his favourite childhood fantasy books to read: The Hero and the Crown, by Robin McKinley. I liked it so much that I started looking around to see what else she has written, and found Beauty. It’s a re-telling of the classic fairy tale Beauty and the Beast.
I won’t give a synopsis since most people know the story, but I will say that Beauty is an incredibly likable character and I blazed through this book. Can’t wait to read more by McKinley!
