BEAUTY & THE BEAST by Richard Hills


Beauty and the Beast is a delightful version of the popular Pantomime. Prince Charles of Carpathia is on his way to propose to Princess Beauty of Mauritania. Arriving early, he is intercepted by the evil Edwina. When he refuses to marry her, she locks him in the Clock Tower. When the Clock Tower is unlocked, he emerges as a Beast and the King orders his soldiers to find him and shoot him. Will Edwina ever be beaten, and will the Beast ever become human so that Princess Beauty can marry her Prince Charles?
