Tale of Despereaux: Being the Story of a Mouse, a Princess, Some Soup, and a Spool of Thread.

The Tale of Despereaux - Kate DiCamillo, Timothy Basil Ering This book did not impress me. I thought that it would be good, considering that it won the Newberry award. But I did not find it to be a good work of children's literature. Instead, I thought the plot was ridiculous and stupid. The writing style was simplistic--which can be good, but wasn't in the case of this book. I have to admit, though, that the illustrations are adorable!
