The book explains a lot of things that didn't make sense in the original writings but then asks a lot more! This review will be full of spoilers, but I don't give an enchanted clock about that because you don't need to waste your time reading it anyway. Seriously who ever watched BatB and thought, "Man I would LOVE to read a book where half of the story is dedicated to good old wacky Maurice not really doing anything. And yes, I know that cannon assumes that Belle’s mother must’ve been a pretty hot number given the fact that Maurice is…well, Maurice and everyone in town sings about Belle who looks nothing like Maurice. Belle's supposed brilliance countering the fact that she never put it together that Beast is the prince?

And as awful as the antagonist is (and no, he isn't who you think he is), and despite his twisted logic and behavior, you are able to understand this person's reasoning and motives for doing what he did because the characters are fleshed out so well.The stove, which seemed so cheerful and warm and fiery at the end of the room, now began to yawn and stretch its great black iron arms and exhaust pipe.

So, in this retelling Belle’s mother is the sorcerer that cursed the Beast at the beginning of the story. Entertainment: A Table is Waiting • Beauty and the Beast Live on Stage • Cinderella's Surprise Celebration • Cinderellabration: Lights of Romance • Disney's Believe • Disney Dreams: An Enchanted Classic • Enchanted Tales with Belle • Fantasmic! As Old as Time is the third book in a new YA line that reimagines classic Disney stories in surprising new ways. Seriously, who reads or watches Beauty and the Beast and wonders, "Man, I wish I knew more about Maurice.

Haven't finished reading it but so far I love it and definitely plan to read other books in the series. I think if it had been another tale I might not have appreciated this repetition quite so much, but as both Disney adaptations of this story are so beloved to me I really liked hearing the tale again, here.
