"McKinley has managed to retain Beauty's unique voice. This version brings back the sharpened cruelty towards Beauty and his companions, and McKinley has rightfully retained the pain and the sadness of some of the incidents. Children will still weep at the death of Ginger, and Jeffer's portrayal of the fire is quite frightening." (Novelist Review)
