The Tale of Despereaux

Published December 8, 2014 by Bookclub

We have all just read Kate DiCamillo’s charming tale of the the tiny mouse with big ears and even bigger ideas!

Despereaux has always felt different from the other mice living in the King’s castle and this book tells of how he  finds the courage to be himself and to fight for what he believes to be important.

Along the way, we also meet a rat who is fascinated by the light, a beautiful and kind princess and a poor, deaf serving girl who has never known love and who would give anything to be that princess.
