Activity Overview


The point of view in The Tale of Despereaux is different from many other novels. First, the narrator speaks directly to the reader, like when the narrator tells readers how Despereaux was listening to the music instead of searching for crumbs like normal mice. Additionally, the narrator knows what the characters are thinking; the narrator tells the reader how Despereaux is eager to see the light. Finally, the narrator knows what the characters are feeling; he describes the mixture of emotions of Despereaux as he saves the princess from Roscuro.
