Early readers will be in their element with this appealing storybook starring Despereaux Tilling, a tiny mouse graced with oversized ears who was born too big for his little world. The tale follows Despereaux on his adventures from Mouse World, where he is born, to the castle library, the princess's chambers, and even a rat-filled dungeon. With the love of Princess Pea and the friendship of a unique rat named Roscuro, Despereaux finds the courage of a knight in shining armor.

Kate DiCamillo's literary classic about Despereaux Tilling has enchanted children and adults around the globe. In this tale of bravery, forgiveness and redemption, one small creature teaches a kingdom that it takes only a little light to show the truth: What you look like doesn't equal what you are. Published in 23 languages, with more than 2 million copies in print, a New York Times #1 bestseller and winner of the Newbery Medal, The Tale of Despereaux is now animated adventure from Universal Pictures.
