Beastly & More Versions of La Belle et la Bete

I hope everyone enjoyed last week’s snow day & weekend!  While snowed in, I reread some more of Beastly, read Andrew Lang’s version in the Blue Fairy Book (Remember… That was a translation of the older, novella-sized “modern” tale) and previewed the 1946 French film (subtitled, of course) La Belle et la Bete.  Such different imaginings of an ancient tale!

How are you doing with Beastly?  Have you figured out who all the fairy tale characters are in the chat rooms (Mr. Anderson, BeastNYC, SilentMaid, Froggie, Grizzlyguy)?  Do you think the behaviors shown in the first two parts illustrates some rather “beastly” characters?
