Story of a Mouse, a Princess, Some Soup, and a Spool of Thread ] ፕ Kindle By Kate DiCamillo ፥ CHAPTER ONE THE LAST ONEThis story begins within the walls of a castle, with the birth of a mouse A small mouse The last mouse born to his parents and the only one of his litter to be born alive.Where are my babies said the exhausted mother when the ordeal was through Show to me my babies.The father mouse held the one small mouse up high.There is only this one, he said The others are dead.Mon Dieu, just the one mouse baby Just the one Will you name him All of that work for nothing, said the mother She sighed It is so sad It is such the disappointment She was a French mouse who had arrived at the castle long ago in the luggage of a visiting French diplomat Disappointment was one of her favorite words She used it often.Will you name him repeated the father.Will I name him Will I name him Of course, I will name him, but he will only die like the others Oh, so sad Oh, such the tragedy.The mouse mother held a handkerchief to her nose and then waved it in front of her face She sniffed I will name him Yes I will name this mouse Despereaux, for all the sadness, for the many despairs in this place Now, where is my mirror Her husband handed her a small shard of mirror The mouse mother, whose name was Antoinette, looked at her reflection and gasped aloud Toulse, she said to one of her sons, get for me my makeup bag My eyes are a fright.While Antoinette touched up her eye makeup, the mouse father put Despereaux down on a bed made of blanket scraps The April sun, weak but determined, shone through a castle window and from there squeezed itself through a small hole in the wall and placed one golden finger on the little mouse.The other, older mice children gathered around to stare at Despereaux.His ears are too big, said his sister Merlot Those are the biggest ears I ve ever seen.Look, said a brother named Furlough, his eyes are open Pa, his eyes are open They shouldn t be open.It is true Despereaux s eyes should not have been open But they were He was staring at the sun reflecting off his mother s mirror The light was shining onto the ceiling in an oval of brilliance, and he was smiling up at the sight.There s something wrong with him, said the father Leave him alone.Despereaux s brothers and sisters stepped back, away from the new mouse.This is the last, proclaimed Antoinette from her bed I will have no mice babies They are such the disappointment They are hard on my beauty They ruin, for me, my looks This is the last one No .The last one, said the father And he ll be dead soon He can t live Not with his eyes open like that.But, reader, he did live.This is his story.______THE TALE OF DESPEREAUX by Kate DiCamillo, illustrated by Timothy Basil Ering Text
