Read in June, 2005

DiCamillo uses an interesting voice of narration, and does it well. Many middle school readers have become enchanted with the tale of a mouse who fancies himself a knight and saves a princess. I didn't love it, whether it was the settings or the smugness of the narrator. But the kids seem to dig it.
