The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo won the Newbury Medal with good reason. DiCamillo paints brilliant imagery throughout this fairy tale while celebrating love, forgiveness, and grace. The movie does not do justice to the book. I read this novel, one with very few pictures, to my very wiggly kindergartner, and he was hooked.
