Activity Overview


In this activity, students will choose an event, or a series of connected events, that play a key role in the plot. This example reveals how Despereaux was mistreated by his family and his community for being different. First, Furlough, Despereaux’s brother, notices Despereaux’s strange behavior and reports it to their father, Lester. After Lester sends Despereaux to the Mouse Council, the Head Mouse declares that Despereaux is a threat to the community and therefore sends him to the rats in the dungeon. Furlough is responsible for escorting Despereaux to the dungeon after sentencing.
