Beauty and the Beast

In honor of the release of Disney’s live action film Beauty and the Beast we are including a few links to some of the original versions of the tale itself. As with some older versions of fairytales they may suggest or state things that are not recommended for smaller children. Please do preview them first. Also, do not forget to check out the review of Jennifer Donnelly’s addition to the story Beauty and the Beast Lost in a Book. Enjoy!

(We do not own any rights to the information on these links.)

This is a copy of the original abridged version from France.

Here is an online source for the works of the Brothers Grimm which contains their telling of the classic.

For some added diversity here is the Russian Beauty and the Beast.
