Kids Book Group, Tale of Despereaux

Tale of Despereaux

We are always in need of new Book Group ideas for our 2 girls that will challenge them while still being age-appropriate.  I think this book fits the bill nicely!

Our 8 year old and our 10 year old both enjoyed reading The Tale of Despereaux a lot!  I have also read the book before and it’s one of my favorite children’s stories.  It’s the perfect book and story line for their age and involves princes and princesses which makes it even more captivating for them.

Here’s the synopsis of the book from Amazon.

“Welcome to the story of Despereaux Tilling, a mouse who is in love with music, stories, and a princess named Pea. It is also the story of a rat called Roscuro, who lives in the darkness and covets a world filled with light. And it is the story of Miggery Sow, a slow-witted serving girl who harbors a simple, impossible wish. These three characters are about to embark on a journey that will lead them down into a horrible dungeon,up into a glittering castle, and, ultimately, into each other’s lives. What happens then? As Kate DiCamillo would say: Reader, it is your destiny to find out.”
