TouchyBooks: Beauty and the Beast

TouchyBooks new release Beauty and the Beast is the classic retelling of the story accompanied by simple illustrations that were somehow the right mix of traditional and Japanese Anime.  Odd, but it works very well.  I love that the story had tons of great big vocabulary words, such as: merchant, bankrupt, exchange, volunteered, transformed.

The interactive features are extremely simple and limited, but I did like how portions of the pictures could be revealed with one touch, as well as the movement within some of the pictures (the fire and rain).  LoLo just wanted to replay the page with Belle crying over and over-he was mesmerized by the audio on this page which sounded very realistic.

If you have a little princess in your house this one will be a hit.  After all, who doesn't like a 'happily ever after?'
