The glorious tale of a little castle mouse with a big heart – and a thirst for adventure! Despereaux is a mouse in love; in love with music, with stories, and with a princess named Pea. He can read books, and he can hear sounds that no one else can hear. (Two very dangerous talents for a castle mouse like him.) Everyone expects Despereaux to die young, but he stubbornly refuses to do so. But when he’s whisked into a breakneck adventure, will he finally win his heart’s desire?
