Sunday Times Children's Book of the Week

The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo is written conspiratorially, as if a storyteller were recounting the tale, so it suits reading aloud. Its short sentences and paragraphs, and pacey action, also motivate children to read for themselves. It is complemented by skilled, shadowy illustrations that are a tad scary for sensitive seven-year-olds. NICOLETTE JONES
