More About The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo; Timothy Basil Ering
 
 
 
Overview

A brave mouse, a covetous rat, a wishful serving girl, and a princess named Pea come together in Kate DiCamillo's Newbery Medal–winning tale. 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. Featuring black-and-white illustrations and a refreshed cover by Timothy Basil Ering, as well as an excerpt from Kate DiCamillo's newest novel, Raymie Nightingale.
