Beauty and the Beast: dress Once upon a time there lived a rich merchant and his three daughters. The merchant spent much of his time away; making deals and gathering his fortune. When he was far from home, his two eldest daughters filled their time spending his hard earned money on fancy dresses and the finest jewellery. Unfortunately, when he did return home, they seldom remembered to thank their father for his hard work.

On the other hand, the merchant’s youngest daughter dearly missed her father when he was away on business. She spent most of her time in the library, reading books and escaping to adventurous lands, for she found time passed quickly when she read.
