When Rabén & Sjögren made their antology of princess fairytales, I was glad to be asked to illustrate the story about the beauty and the beast. It was interesting to find my own way of drawing the story. How does a beauty look? What kind of beast is scary enough to be a beast, but not TO scary? And what will my drawings tell the kids about ideals and ugliness? My version of the story is not much like Disneys, but still it is a cute princess fairytale.
