“I dreamed that the stream from the enchanted wood turned to liquid gold, and its voice as it ran over the rocks was as soft as silk; and a great red griffin wheeled over our meadow, shadowing the house with its wings.”
This excerpt is actually from page 55, since page 56 is blank. Robin McKinley’s Beauty is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast,and is the most enchanting retelling of the tale I have ever read. I’m always looking for more fairy tale retellings, so let me know which are your favorites.
