Of Mice and ..... Well, More Mice

And rats..... and the occasional person.

The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo
5 stars

This is a fabulous little story. Absolutely fabulous.

I'd never read it, and with the movie out and all I figured I needed to. Now I really want to see it. Assuming they didn't screw it up.

Despereaux the mouse makes an adorable knight in shining armor. And of course, everyone lives happily ever after.

I'm really thinking that this might be one to try with Boo. A bit long perhaps, but really fun. I might watch the movie with her first and then read it to her....

  1. I've been meaning to pick up a copy of this. I'll have to add it to my wish list.
