Excerpt

ok up her attention, was a large library, a harpsichord, and several music books. "Well, (said she to herself,) I see they will not let my time hang heavy on my hands for want of amusement." Then she reflected, "Were I but to stay here a day, there would not have been all these preparations." This consideration inspired her with fresh courage; and opening the library, she took a book, and read these words in letters of gold:--

/* "Welcome, Beauty, banish fear, You are queen and mistress here; Speak your wishes, speak your will, Swift obedience meets them still." /*

"Alas, (said she, with a sigh,) there is nothing I desire so much as to see my poor father, and to know what he is doing." She had no sooner said this, when casting her eyes on a great looking-glass, to her great amazement she saw her own home, where her father arrived with a very dejected countenance; her sisters went to meet him, and, notwithstanding their endeavours to appear sorrowful, their joy, felt for having got rid of their sister

This book is just fantastic! I didn't read this book until fairly recently, having been satisfied with the musical intepretation in the form the 1994 disney "classic".

However, music and colourful animation aside, after reading this book I have decided that it was one of the best and most influential books of my life. A beautiful tale of ignorance, love and selflessness. It instills the most important of values in our younger counterparts.

This Book is definitely going to be on my children's bedtime reading agenda, even if they don't like it!
