The Friday Book....

Mom says we are not sharing the blog enough between us so she is going to assign days for each group of animals. Friday is going to be book day where one or several of us will spotlight a book we like.

This week Percy, Possum, & Patch spotlight:

The Tale of Despereaux: Being the story of a mouse, a princess, some soup, and a spool of thread
by Kate DiCamillo

Despereaux is the odd mouse out and ends up banished to the dungeon with the rats
due to his differences. He is an amazing little mouse though and nothing can get
him down for too long. The rats in the story are not shown in too friendly
of a light, but considering it is a mouse's story, this is not too surprising.
Chirascuro is a rat that yerns for the light, unlike the others.
Princess Pea, well, she's a princess, what can we say.
~Percy, Possum, & Patch Pickwick Mousepetpet
Okay, we can go now.

oooh, that looks like a neat book. My Bunny Mommy says that the author must be very clever naming the character who years for light Chirascuro. Bunny Mommy studied art in college and she says that there is an Italian word chiaroscuro, which refers to the mastery of depicting dim light and heavy shadow (like Rembrandt did). Now she wants to read it because she thinks there must be lots of other clever things in the book too! She says she's sorry for making me write so much but she likes art very much.

I love the picture of the mice with the book. I think Bubbles likes it also, but I'm afraid he is thinking more about lunch than literature.

My mum has read that book. She said she was kind of disappointed. The first half was good and she was looking forward to a really exciting second half but it fizzled out a bit.
