August 10th Meeting - The Tale of Despereaux

Book : The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo

Attendee : Amber, Matt, Susan, Mitzi, Amy, & me.

Location : Sadang St. (line#2&4) Cafe Hobby

This meeting's book was a children's story and a very cute one at that.

I'd totally want to read it to my future children for bedtime story. The story unfolds with a mouse named Despereaux that was born different from other mice. He appreciates things that ordinary mice wouldn't and falls in love with a princess, the Pea. It is a mouse tale where he goes through obstacles to finally reach his ultimate dream. It's a story of a very brave and chivalrous mouse.

Universal Studio has made it in to an animation and by viewing the trailer it seems pretty good. It's coming out this Christmas.. you might want to check it out yourself.
Isn't he just ADORABLE?! That's baby Despereaux.. when he was born with his eyes wide open.
