I thought The Tale of Despereaux was a very good book, even though it is below my reading level. The end of the story ties everything together perfectly. When I was done reading it, I immediately told my sister that she needed to read it.
When The Tale of Despereaux came out as a movie, my family went to see it. It was good, but the book was (as in most cases) better.
I really recommend this book to everyone. It also makes a great read aloud book.
I have read it twice but now in school my teacher is reading it to us ( can you belive it I man we are already in 4th grade) even though I think everyone has read it but probably not because kids in my class don’t really like to read! 8O
