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 (Spanish Edition)?
Great Bedtime Story! Mar 16, 2007
I bought this because my son and I had read "Because of Winn Dixie", and loved it. Great for bedtime reading...chapters are not too long, so we can read 2 a night and still get to bed on time. The story is engaging and my son is hooked.
Despereaux Aug 26, 2006
This is an absolute must have for any book lover's library! I read it in a few short hours! I couldn't put it down. My 14 yr. old son read it and concluded with the same opinion.
