In the author's own words....
I was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, raised in Clermont, Florida, and currently live in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I write for both children and adults and I like to think of myself as a storyteller.
Here are a few more facts about me: I am short. And loud. I hate to cook and love to eat. I am single and childless, but I have lots of friends and I am an aunt to three lovely children (Luke, Roxanne, and Max) and one not so lovely dog (Henry).
I think of myself as an enormously lucky person: I get to tell stories for a living.
Kate DiCamillo currently resides in minneapolis, in the state of Minnesota.
Reviews - What do customers think about Despereaux/the Tale Of Despereaux?
One star for the Amazon page, not the book Jul 25, 2008
I didn't notice that this page is for the SPANISH version of the book. Thre's only one tiny reference in the ISBN section, where it says language, SPANISH. So I just wasted $10 because it's too much hassle to return it.
IF YOU WANT THE ENGLISH VERSION OF THIS BOOK, LOOK FOR A DIFFERENT PAGE!!!!
Tale of Desperaux Feb 22, 2006
Book was in good shape although one of the face pages had been removed and this was not advertised that I recall.
