A popular new title in the Young Reading series with a hardback cover and an audio CD inserted into a wallet inside the back cover, making the book and CD easy to store together.
A timeless love story retold for children growing in their reading confidence and ability. The Beast lives alone in his castle, enchanted by a wicked fairy and waiting for true love to break the spell. Could Beauty be the one to see through his ugly exterior? Usborne Young Reading has been developed with reading experts from Roehampton University. The audio CD includes a dramatic listen-along recording with music and sound effects, followed by a read-along version with prompts for page turns.
