This is a review copy of the book mailed to me by illustrator Francesca Baerald from Italy. It's a self-published 32-page paperback.
The Beauty and the Beast here is the classic tale written by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont.
Inspired by and based on the original story, Francesca Baerald came up with her own take using her art. Pages are filled with painted illustrations that go alongside the short story. Plot remains the same except the beast here is a dragon.
