Have you ever thought that mice like to dream about fairy tales? You probably haven't, because mice don't do that. Except for one mouse in particular.
Meet Despereaux Tilling.
Right from his birth, everyone knew he was odd, especially with those huge ears, and his unusually tiny body. But a world needs at least one person--or mouse--to be different than the rest.
Because of his oddities, Despereaux sees more, hears more, and knows more about the human world than any other mouse. All this helps him win the heart of the human Princess Pea, who lives in the castle.
Also in this enchanting story you'll find other characters, all dreaming to have something they can't have, but wanting it more than anything.
What can one tiny mouse with big ears do, to help everyone out?
The only way to know is to read "The Tale of Despereaux".
