The Tale of Despereaux

My favorite part of the book, The Tale of Despereaux, by Kate Dicamillo, was when Despereaux rescued the princess.

The only thing I didn't like about this book was that the story did not flow along very well. I recommend this book to young readers who are not interested in reading long books but still want to read books with adventure, fantasy and sad parts in it.

Out of the books I have read, and I have read a lot, I would rate The Tale of Despereaux a B+. I hope many children will read it.

Megan, [Portland, Oregon] is a 3rd grade student. She likes to read different kinds of books. She is learning to play piano and violin and goes to two different school.
