Beauty FromΒ Beauty by Robin McKinley (page 55 as page 56 is blank):

I dreamed that the stream from the enchanted wood turned to liquid gold, and its voice as it ran over the rocks was as soft as silk; and a great red griffin wheeled over our meadow, shadowing the house with its wings.

This is going to be my next read. I read this in grade school and loved it so much that I want to revisit it. It is also a retelling ofΒ Beauty and the Beast!

Grab a book and join the fun.
