ABSTRACT
The article discusses the concept of beauty as it relates to children's literature. The author argues that beauty can be a burden to young female characters, and that emphasis on physical beauty has been replaced to an emphasis on the character's "inner beauty." The author also suggests that de-valuing beauty could be perceived as the "promotion of ugliness."
