The Tale of Despereaux by Kate Dicamillo
The Tale of Despereaux

ZoriBeth, January 19, 2010

One of my two favorite books of all time, The Tale of Despereaux is a work of art disguised as a children's book. Simple, funny, elegant, and heart-wrenching, it is the perfect blend of darkness and light which we reflects that absurd miracle we call life. (Yet another case of "Don't judge a book by its movie.")
