Review: I adored this story Belle has always been my favourite ever since I was a little girl and this story shows exactly why I love her. She’s smart, brave, independent, individual and loves reading. 

In this story Belle starts to feel really alone when none of her classmates seem to like her as she’s so different to them, but she walks into the abandoned looking book shop and her world opens up but it’s to close and she instantly feels In her heart she has to save it. 

It was great learning a bit more of how her love of books started and how connected to her books she really is. It was great seeing her determination at a young age and her passion for what she believes in. 

The illustrations in this book are phenomenal and adorable, I loved seeing young belle and all her classmates so cute. I really enjoyed this book so much, it was precious, sweet and had a great simple story.
