Description

See below for English description.

Despereaux, une minuscule souris aux oreilles démesurées n'écoute que son courage afin de délivrer une princesse, dont il est amoureux, des griffes d'un méchant rat et de sa complice.

 

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.

Original title: The Tale of Despereaux
