But, this story doesn't just follow Despereaux. It also follows a young servant girl named Miggery Sow and a rat named Roscuro. And you see how these three lives intertwine with the Princess Pea and the dungeon. It is really quite a clever story with lots of depth in character development.
I loved the voice in this book. There are many stops and the "Narrator" speaks to the "Reader". This "Narrator" had questions for us to ask ourselves, which usually were answered a few lines after the question. This really drew us into the storyline as we watched it unfold.
The drawings in the book are well done and add a depth to the reading.
