Despereaux is a mouse living within the walls of a castle, and a shame to the mouse community.
Roscuro is a rat living in the castle dungeon. He too is different from others. But one night he changes.
Mig is a girl who lives with her cruel owner. She is nearly deaf. She wants to be the princess, but nobody cares of her.
Pea IS the princess. She is adored by Mig, honored by Despereaux and hated by Roscuro.
Of course, they’re all destined to meet, in ways not always good. Who is to be the hero?
This book is one of the best books I’ve read. I didn’t know that a story about a mouse could be so intriguing and serious. It’s no surprise that it was a Newbery Honor! Stop whatever you’re reading right now and start reading The Tale of Despereaux!
