Beautiful illustrations, most especially the silhouette pages, with the exception of the Beast, who was ugly but not even in a prettily-drawn ugly sort-of way. The story was hardly an exceptional retelling, the dialogue wasn't great, and I fail to see how exactly Beauty ever fell in love with the Beast. It also lacked that fairytale romance I've come to expect from Beauty and The Beast. Still, a lovely book and little girls will likely love it.
But Beast was so bloody melodramatic, I swear I couldn't stand it. "You left... so I was starving myself."
