Book Review: The Tale of Despereaux

The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo My rating: 4 of 5 stars Wow, so I was apparently a little deprived as a child for not having read this. I guess I would have rather read about people than mice. But I’ve been looking for some third grade books to read aloud to my class […]
