After reading Colin’s review on The Tale of Despereaux, I am considering reading this book. Colin made the book sound super fast-paced and energetic. The book sounded super interesting and it didn’t sound like anything I have ever read before. Colin included very descriptive words and created a mental picture very quickly. Although I tend to not like classics, this book sounds very out-of-the-ordinary. Colin did an outstanding job and is an amazing writer. Simply after reading the review, I already know all about the book and have a sudden wish to figure out what happens. Despereauz sounds so inspiring and this little rat seems to make a big difference. I love how he included some questions; they really made the reader want to read it even more. I suggest that you consider reading The Tale of Despereaux, and that you consider reading some of Colin’s posts.
