Ella's always been a simple child. She didn't want anything other than a book in her hands and her brother by her side. When her brother finally figures out his invention and ventures out to find someone to buy it, he doesn't return. A creepy mansion, some talking furniture and, oh yeah, a giant animal big enough to kill her with one big step. What's the worst that could happen? This is a retelling of the fairytale Beauty and the Beast.
