2003: The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo(Candlewick Press)
Newbery Medal Winner
Wonderful characters and a skillful use of a narrator make this tale of a very small mouse named Despereaux and his love for the Princess Pea a very entertaining read. When the evil rat Roscuro kidnaps Princess Pea and takes her to the dark, dreadful castle dungeon, Despereaux gathers all of his courage and attempts to rescue her. This story is by turns sad, funny and dramatic, and well worth reading.
