Thanks to Disney Press for sending me these books, and for providing a prize pack to giveaway to a reader.
We are so excited to see the new live action Beauty and the Beast movie in theaters. My daughter was in the musical in her school this past fall, and since then, we’ve all had the songs running through our heads. It’s always nice when there’s a movie that our whole family is looking forward to seeing.
In addition to the movie, Disney Press is also releasing some Beauty and the Beast books, and we have a fun giveaway for two of the books, plus a Fandango gift card to see the movie.
Beauty and the Beast: Lost In A Book, by Jennifer Donnelly, was released on January 31, 2017, and is for kids aged 9+. Here’s a synopsis of the book.
Smart, bookish Belle, a captive in the Beast’s castle, has become accustomed to her new home and has befriended its inhabitants. When she comes upon Nevermore, an enchanted book unlike anything else she has seen in the castle, Belle finds herself pulled into its pages and transported to a world of glamour and intrigue. The adventures Belle has always imagined, the dreams she was forced to give up when she became a prisoner, seem within reach again.
The charming and mysterious characters Belle meets within the pages of Nevermore offer her glamorous conversation, a life of dazzling Parisian luxury, and even a reunion she never thought possible. Here Belle can have everything she ever wished for. But what about her friends in the Beast’s castle? Can Belle trust her new companions inside the pages of Nevermore? Is Nevermore‘s world even real? Belle must uncover the truth about the book, before she loses herself in it forever.
