Product description

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 a princess named Pea. What’s more, he can read books and 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 as he is whisked into a breakneck adventure, will he finally win his heart’s desire?

This junior novel edition of the unforgettable film is based on a Newbery Medal-winning book, and includes 8 pages of film photos!
