(In Development)

 

A young book illustrator who is unlucky in love finds herself drawn to the woodland walkway in her local park, where strange tailless creatures disappear into the crevices between the chunks of felled wood.

 

One night, in a dream she follows one and finds herself in the grounds of a stately home where an elaborate dress has been laid out ready for its next wearer,

 

She finds the house populated by a strange family who could all come from classic literature, including a dark aristocrat who keeps a creature who is half woman and half animal chained up in the tower for his own amusement.

 

But what designs does he have on the heroine. Will she be compelled to wear the dress and join him in the house forever or can she return to the safety of her mundane everyday life.
