Beauty and the Beast stories are found in many cultures around the world and are classified as "Lost Husband Tales" or Animal Bridegroom stories. Typically, Beauty and the Beast tales involve a husband that needs to be transformed into their true form by the love of a good woman.  Readers are cautioned through such tales to not judge a book by it's cover. Can you think of a few similar stories?The Beauty and the Beast tale at the heart of the popularized Disney version was heavily influenced by fairy tales told in by Charles Perrault in the parlours of France in the 1700's. Like many fairy tales, the first version was written by Madame Gabrielle-Suzanne de Villeneuve in 1740 as a novella for an adult audience. Later the tale was adapted for children with moral lessons added by Madame Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont in 1757.
