The Tale of Despereaux
by Kate DiCamillo
My rating: ****
I've had this book on my shelf for a while. With the recent advertisements for the upcoming movie, I decided to give it a try.
This is a cute tale of love, courage, and a mouse on a quest. The book is well written, for a reader of any age. I think that you will fall in love with brave little Despereaux, the mouse who wasn't supposed to live. Kate DiCamillo did a wonderful job of painting a quaint story of friendship and change. I look forward to seeing how the movie stays with the plot of the book.
