An original addition to the beloved Beauty and the Beast fairy tale, Lost in a Book follows the lonely, bookish Belle as she finds an enchanted book in the Beast's library called Nevermore that carries her into a glittering new world. There, Belle is befriended by a mysterious countess who offers her the life she's always dreamed of.

But Nevermore is not what it seems, and the more time Belle spends there, the harder it is to leave. Good stories take hold of us and never let us go, and once Belle becomes lost in this book, she may never find her way out again.
This deluxe hardcover novel expands upon the beautiful story and world seen in the new Walt Disney Studios' film, Beauty and the Beast.

    Beauty and the Beast: Lost in a Book is an amazing back story behind the tale as old as time we all know and love. The book begins with the sisters Love and Death. The extremely competitive sisters make a bet to decide what is more powerful; love or hatred. Along the way, book-loving Belle discovers a mysterious book in Beast's library called Nevermore. A magical book that transports the owner to their dream world. In this amazing adventure Belle finds friends,meets enemies, and learns that you are the author of your own story during all the twists and turns. I would recommend this to anyone who loves the Beauty and the Beast story and understands the feeling of getting lost in a book.

          I would recommend this book totally. It gives an additional back story to the Beauty and the Beast film. The book is about Belle finding this story called Nevermore and meets friends there. She used Nevermore as a escape from the Beast's castle,and runs into some trouble. There are twists and turns. I hope you can enjoy this book as much as I did.

              This book is adding on to the movie and gives more information and widens your imagination of what happened when she was in the beast's castle and imprisoned. It is sort of like Alice in wonderland.

                Personally, my favorite part is when Belle goes into the Beast's library and discovers Forevermore, the book. I think that if I was in Forevermore I would be scared when everything turns into what it acutely is. I recommend this book to readers who like adventure.

                    Belle finds a book in the Beast's library. She opens a book and travels to Nevermore. She has to make time while she travels through the book so she can spend time with the Beast and his servants. After a little while, Belle becomes trapped in Nevermore. She has to find a way out before she gets trapped forever. I enjoyed this book because it is adventurous and filled with fun but slightly sad.

                      I really want to read this book, especially since the movie remake just came out.
