The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo


This was a very cute children’s story. There’s action, adventure, romance and comedy all wrapped up into one. Read it, it’s a short easy read and you WILL enjoy it. I promise. It’s super super cute!

The downside? The author talks to you. I find that highly annoying – the “Dear Reader” parts. Oh, just shut up and tell the story, Ms. Author Lady.


This is the story of Desperaux Tilling, a mouse in love with music, stories, and a princess named Pea. It is also the story of Miggery Sow, a slow-witted serving girl with a simple, impossible wish. These characters are about to embark on a journey that will lead them down into a horrible dungeon, up into a glittering castle, and ultimately, into each other’s lives.
