Excellent uplifting tale for all ages to enjoy. Definitely a good book to read to young children aloud. Writing style is interactive for the child. Moral story about believing in dreams and self-confidence to follow you heart. Themes of truth, faith, forgiveness, and courage abound.

Despereaux is a quick read with a quirky set of characters, an old-fashioned, ever present narrator, and a happy ending. I enjoyed it and it was perfect for my rainy day at home.

Even tho I am an adult there are some wonderful children's books out there and I love to read them. If my kids were younger I would have read this to them.
