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.
With black-and-white illustrations and a refreshed cover by Timothy Basil Ering.

This is the most awsome book I have ever read! It is amazing! I recomend it to 7-15.
I remember reading this during Reading Olympics and finding that others in it didn't like this book. Personally, I think it is very clever and entertaining to read. I highly recommend!
This is the best book ever! We are almost done reading it, it is awesome.
This story is about being different and finding out how to fit in.
