GoodReads Review: The Tale of Despereaux

The Tale of DespereauxThe Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sweet and charming, The Tale of Despereaux weaves a lovely tale about a mouse who loves another and to what lengths he will go to preserve that love. With metaphoric meanings of love, light and dark in this book primarily written for children from a narrator's point of view (who speaks directly to the reader), Despereaux finds his way into the heart of the readers as well as his one true love.

Rated PG for mildly dark thematic material.

Audiobook side note: This book is captivating to listen to. It's really well read, nice tone, with little drag. Great way to listen with kids.
