Tale of Despereaux: Movie & Graphic Novel

Reading The Tale of Despereaux graphic novel with my dog Adelie

Usually my blog posts are about social media and using online video for your business. But as you know I occasionally take a break to talk about pop culture. Well there is no better reason than when two friends put out a really cool graphic novel that is tied in to a big motion picture release.

Matt Smith and David Tilton have illustrated a graphic novel interpretation of The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo which is a tie-in to the Universal Pictures motion picture that is being released December 19th. The graphic novel is out now though…and in my unbiased opinion is absolutely fantastic.

The story is about a misfit mouse who prefers reading books to eating them, an unhappy rat and a servant girl – whose stories all are tied with that of the castle’s princess. If you have kids, they will love it. Even if you don’t have kids…you will love it.

Graphic novels are an amazing way of seeing a visual interpretation of a great story. Definitely check out the graphic novel before you see the movie.
