The Tale of Despereaux

Winner of the 2004 Newbery Medal, The Tale of Despereaux is a fantasy about the mouse's adventures as he attempts to rescue a beautiful human princess from the rats.

Each of the 'books' is told from a different character's point of view: Despereaux, Roscuro, Miggery Sow, and finally all of them combined; which truly brings the story to life.

DiCamillo's work is truly original as amidst all the action and adventure, there will always be a moral and philosophical message with a deep meaning.
