This is by far one of the most beautiful books I have ever seen! I added it to my wish list on Amazon today. I found it at the library years ago, but at that time, I wasn't really collecting books. So now I'm going to add it to my ever growing collection. If you've ever read the Inkheart series, you'll know what it means when I have a feeling my home is going to end up like Elinor's. Anyway, this breathtaking book is an adaptation of the Grimm fairytale and it is by Laurel Long (who also illustrated it) and Jacqueline K. Ogburn. The fairytale itself is very like Beauty and the Beast, which may be why I love it so much. These are just a few of the amazing illustrations.
