It is wonderful how believable this book is - a favorite with our fifth graders.
Read a good book and practice your Spanish, too (you can read the English copy side by side)
Despereax is small, sickly and unloved. How can he possibly be a hero? A great story!
Although it is self described as poems, the feel is very story like, so don't let that keep you from reading this book.
Considers how we judge others who are different. A classic story.
