Truth, Justice, Bravery and Sword-fighting

It sounds like there are some great themes in this upcoming film based on Kate DiCamillo's Newbery Award-winning book (click on the "Continue reading" link below). Ms. DiCamillo also wrote Because of Winn Dixie and a book that sounds very intriguing, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane.

Will you readers let us know if this video causes you problems? We've never posted one in this format before. If it's making the homepage tough to load, we can move it under a jump. Thanks.

I hadn't heard of this film before, and watching the previews on the website made me cry. Justice, bravery, and truth are in short supply it seems. It's good to be reminded they're not as rare as we think they are.

"The Tale of Desperaux" is such a great novel, it's hard not to gush. It's redemptive. It teaches forgiveness. It encourages a love of books and a love of soup and a love of light.
And it has a sense of humor. There is a little hint of Dickens in the names and characters -- a servant girl called "Miggery Sow" and a rat who names himself "Chiarascuro."
Plus, when a mouse carries a sword (even a sword that used to be a sewing needle), you've got to love him.
