Maria Isabel Molina

María Isabel Molina

Ya he contado otras veces que desde niña me inventaba historias. Los botones del costurero de mi madre, los muñecos recortables de papel, los cromos de artistas de cine, todo era bueno para dramatizar una aventura. En la hora de estudio del colegio, las escribía en los cuadernos de apuntes. Enviar los primeros cuentos –escritos a mano- a algunas revistas y más tarde presentar un original a un concurso fueron pasos inevitables. Y como tuvieron buena acogida....  pues continué escribiendo más libros y otras historias hasta hoy. Mientras, el tiempo (mi marido, los cinco hijos, los nietos, el trabajo –el otro trabajo- y las canas) se  tejía paralelo y unido a la escritura. La vida es así. Pero esa es otra historia…

New - Roald Dahl’s Poetry in Spanish!

La Bella y la Bestia

  Marie Leprince de Beaumont
La Bella y la Bestia
(Beauty and the Beast)

Beauty and the Beast is one of the most popular classic tales ever written. A beautiful young woman dreams of meeting a handsome prince, but to save her father’s life, she leaves home to live with a terrible, frightening beast. Though her patron is hideous, his disarming generosity slowly leads to asurprising connection. Generations of children have been fascinated by the story of the girl named Beauty, who grows to love a fearsome beast by learning to see and cherish his kindness, generosity, and intelligence.

A quarter-century on from the animated classic, Disney brings the lovely fantasy tale to life in live-action, with a widened mythology and an all-star cast. Directed by Oscar-winner Bill Condon, starring Emma Watson as Belle and San Stevens as the cursed Beast.
