Book Review: Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo - Reviewed by Romi Foster (28 Nov 2011)
If you were to come to reading this, the novel, after watching the movie, you would probably be very shocked. It is quite different, but similar also, in ways one can't singularly discribe. I was surprised at the American feel of the book, I oughtn't have been because Kate DiCamillo is American, but it seemed an odd thing to go along with the book.
I didn't like the book nearly as much as I thought I would, but it is still a great fairytale for modern times, though I wasn't one hundred percent in love with the ending, that I would've changed.
