Belleza y La Bestia
Red Ridin' in the Hood and Other Cuentos
In Red Ridin' in the Hood and Other Cuentos, Patricia Marcantonio has taken eleven traditional fairy tales and retold them with a Latino flavor. In Belleza y La Bestia, Ms Marcantonio has saved all the elements that make Beauty and the Beast such a perennial classic yet has breathed new life into it with a Latino cultural shift. Belleza is now from a peasant family and cares for the wounded among Benito Juarez' freedom fighters.
