Welcome to the story of Despereaux Tilling, a mouse who is in love with music, stories, and a princess named Pea.  It is also the story of a rat called Roscuro, who lives in the darkness and covets a world filled with light.  And it is the story of Miggery Sow, a slow-witted serving girl who harbors a simple, impossible wish.  These three characters are about to embark on a journey that will lead them down into a horrible dungeon, up into a glittering castle, and, ultimately, into each other's lives.  What happens then?  As Kate DiCamillo would say: Reader, it is your destiny to find out. 

With black-and-white illustrations and a refreshed cover by Timothy Basil Ering., 2003
