This is the story of Desperaux Tilling, a mouse in love with music, stories, and a princess named Pea. It is also the story of Miggery Sow, a slow-witted serving girl with a simple, impossible wish. These 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.

And what happens then?

The way the story is told is beautiful. It begins with one character, then pauses and switches to a different character. The narrator is very present and highly amusing. The audience does not get lost in time because the narrator always tells us what is happening simultaneously. The reader is fantastic.

I was plesantly suprised by the story, it's much better than the film in my opinion. Lyrically told, it certainly held my attention if not completely that of my not-quite-4 yr old. Children a little older would certainly appreciate it more.
