Product Description:

This novel by Kate DiCamillo tells the story of the unlikely mouse hero, Despereaux. This especially small, big-eared mouse seems to be a constant disappointment to the other mice in the castle where they live. However, through his intelligence and bravery, Despereaux gains his independence, faces rats in dungeons, saves a princess, and earns the respect of the mice, rats, and even humans. A well-written, thought-provoking tale that is sure to captivate readers of all ages. 270 pgs, pb.

Publisher Description:

Welcome to the story of Despereaux Tilling, a mouse who is in love with music, stories, and a princess named Pea. It is also the story of a rat called Roscuro, who lives in the darkness and covets a world filled with light. And it is the story of Miggery Sow, a slow-witted serving girl who harbors a simple, impossible wish. These three 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. What happens then? As Kate DiCamillo would say: Reader, it is your destiny to find out.

With black-and-white illustrations and a refreshed cover by Timothy Basil Ering.

A brave mouse, a covetous rat, a wishful serving girl, and a princess named Pea come together in Kate DiCamillo's Newbery Medalwinning tale.
