Book Review: Beauty
Coddie is just a plain looking little girl who stinks of the fish she helps her mother clean and cook for their meager living. That is, until the day a fairy grants her a spell to make her the most beautiful woman in the world. Everything goes great until it starts to go horribly wrong: women hate her and are envious of her beauty, and men can't control themselves and try to have their way with her constantly.
Pursued by angry villagers, Coddie is saved by a young lord and thinks she has found real happiness... for a time, but life's may harsh lessons teach Coddie that being beautiful has its own set of dangers and sorrows.
Intriguing twists and uniquely beautiful artwork make this highly unusual fairy tale a must read!
