Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sharon Salluzzo
These digitally created illustrations from the movie show the main events that lead the big-eared little mouse, Despereaux, to set the princess free. The scene from the kitchen includes a pop-up of Boldo, the genie made of vegetable and herbs. There is a splendid pop-up castle at the end of the story. In between, there are lift-the-flaps, a flip book, and the storybook about the prince and princess that Despereaux reads rather than eats. The text is essentially a summary of what happens in the movie. Scenes include Despereaux speaking to Princess Pea, standing before the Mouse Council, and in the dungeon. It is definitely not the Newbery Award winning novel. With the removable flipbook and the fragile pop-ups, this is not a library purchase. Rather, it is a gift book, or a souvenir book of the movie.
