The book Ella Enchanted is by Gail Levine….
At birth, Ella of Frell is given the gift of obedience by the well-meaning but misguided fairy Lucinda. As a result, she cannot disobey a direct order given to her.
Soon she’s whisked away to finishing school and to the beginning of an adventure.
This book is very unlike the classic.There is two sides to it.It is not like the orignal. The only thing that is the same is the plot of the story.
Beauty is not the typical person who you expect to be called Beauty. She isn’t really pretty and she isn’t graceful.Her older sister is the one who really should have the name.
Prince Riley is not athletic, commanding, brave and tall like most princes.All he wants to do is play the bagpipes (badly), study the stars and try to figure out how to try make worms live forever.
So when Beauty’s life is turned upside down, she is forced out into the world and has to figure out just who she wants to be.And when Prince Riley grows fur, he has to learn that looks can be deceiving.
