Billy Beast lives with his mum and dad Betty and Benjamin Beast is a lovely mouldy damp castle - hot and cold running slime in all rooms. Life is good. then one day Billy spots a man picking a rose from his mother's garden. The man is terrified of Billy, but agrees that if Billy spares him, he will send his daughter to marry Billy. But when she turns up, she is SO UGLY - she has a small pink nose, fingers instead of claws, shiny white teeth, and she's not at all hairy (except on her head). What is Billy to do...?
