Tale as Old as Time by Charles Solomon - OPTIONAL

Solomon, Charles Tale as Old as Time: The Art and Making of Beauty and the Beast, 216 pages.  Disney, 2017, 2010.  $50. 

Solomon updates his in-depth book about Beauty and the Beast with 30 new pages about the live action movie.  Unlike the Cinderella book that came out a couple of years ago which provided a wealth of information about the live action film, this one adds the new movie to the original edition and it feels like an after-thought.  While I appreciate those 30 pages, I would have rather had a new book just about the movie instead. It is still a beautiful book with lots of detailed information about the story.  But if you already own the book from 2010, don’t run out and buy this one.
