Disney Beauty and the Beast: The Beast's Tale - Mallory Reaves
I received this book for review from NetGalley.

I enjoyed Beast's point of view much more than Belle's. I like that he has a lot to change and learn (as we all do) and his part brings a great message.

Disney Beauty and the Beast: Belle's Tale: Beauty's Tale
Disney Beauty and the Beast: Belle's Tale: Beauty's Tale - Mallory Reaves This is a manga comic of the new Beauty and the Beast non-cartoon movie. I haven't seen the film yet, but I could definitely see changes in this graphic novel from the stories before it. Belle's background is filled in more concerning her parents, especially her mother. Also, she seems more intelligent and outgoing. She stands up for what she thinks is right, and she's the hero of the story. In most of the traditional Disney tales, the princess has to be saved by a prince, but Belle does most of the saving in these scenarios. Reading this was enjoyable for me.

Disney Beauty and the Beast: The Beast's Tale
Disney Beauty and the Beast: The Beast's Tale - Mallory Reaves This story shows parts about the Beast/Prince that I didn't know before (issues with his parents and such). The reader is able to know what he's thinking in different situations. Getting inside his head gives him so much more personality than in all of the B&TB tales I've seen before. I liked witnessing his interactions with the enchanted help. The action sequences really caught my attention, and I loved the cute little chapter break drawings. I've been wanting to watch the new movie, and knowing this manga comics are based upon it makes more excited to see it.

Book 15/100: The Beast Within by Serena Valentino
The Beast Within: A Tale of Beauty's Prince - Serena Valentino

This series keeps disappointing me, but I keep reading it anyway. :p

In Poor Unfortunate Soul: A Tale of the Sea Witch, my main issue was that too much of the book was dedicated to non-canon characters. While that was also an issue in this book -- although to a lesser extent -- one of the things that annoyed me about this one was the way it tried to shoe-horn existing characters into parts of the story where they didn't really belong. I just had a lot of trouble buying that Gaston and Beast used to be friends, even if they did explain that the Beast had "forgotten" about these years after his transformation. A lot of how the prince/beast was portrayed in this book just didn't feel congruous with the one we know in the book, and his redemption seemed to happen too quickly and easily considering how awful Valentino had set him up to be prior to Belle's arrival. I did like the idea of the curse taking hold slowly rather than all at once, though.

Oh, and this book doesn't give a crap about the movie timeline ... as far as I can tell it takes place over a period of two years or so, rather than 10. And it doesn't address the oh-so-awkward issue of the prince being 11 when he is cursed -- he is in his teens (i.e., old enough to know better) in this version. That was just one more thing that made this interpretation feel sloppily done.

Lady and the Tramp
Lady and the Tramp (Disney Lady and the Tramp) (Little Golden Book) - Teddy Slater,Bill Langley,Ron Dias,Walt Disney Company

A Disney Classic. This book is about a dog named Lady who lives with a wonderful couple in a beautiful house. After awhile she starts to notice they are not paying as much attention to her and the woman is making quite a bit of smaller clothes. Lady's two friends Trusty and Jock tell her the couple is expecting a baby. Tramp comes along and tells Lady how horrible babies are, but she refuses to listen. Once the baby is born, Lady is extremely happy because she gets to watch over the baby now as well. The parents decide to take a vacation, leaving Lady and the baby with a relative who brings her two evil cats with her. The cats start causing problems for Lady and cause the caretaker to send Lady off to the pet store where she escapes. She is chased by a pack of dogs and Tramp saves her. They end up spending the entire night together, even going to far as to get some spaghetti to eat. The next morning Lady heads back home where the caretaker chains her up outside. That night lady sees a rat go into the babies room from the outside. Tramp goes in to stop the rat. Dogcatchers take Tramp away. Trusty and Jock go to save him and end up somehow knocking the wagon over next to a taxi. The taxi has the couple inside, who go home and see how Tramp helped and allowed him to stay home with them and Lady. I would use this in my room for personal reading.
