Beauty And The Beast story
Posted on April 20, 2017
I’m doing one final read-through of my Beauty And The Beast story and then it goes live! The original French tale had serious challenges. Never mind Disney. Yes, I loved the library. But I greatly disliked the way the father allowed his young daughter to be wholly given to a stranger’s control – a stranger known for his violent temper. It was the father’s responsibility to keep her safe. I also greatly disliked the message of ‘just be patient with a violent man – he’ll become your prince charming if you stick around long enough.’ It’s taken me quite a lot of research and thought to develop a version which conveys the message I wish. What are you working on today?
