The daughter and I read the highly acclaimed children's book, The Tale of Despereaux, last summer, and we agreed: It was a wonderful tale. We might just re-read the story this summer as well. It was that good, well worth a second read.

The movie, on the other hand, did not live up to the book. The cast was good enough what with Matthew Broderick, Dustin Hoffman, Tracy Ullman, Kevin Kline and William H. Macy voicing the main characters. Dear readers, a good cast does little for a poor script adaptation. My biggest complaint, and there are many, was that they took so many liberties with the characters, to the point that some were changed into someone else entirely.

Baa Humbug!
