tale of life, light, love
Please read Kate DiCamillo's Tale of Despereaux! It's the most incredible story about life, love, light, and storytelling itself. What's amazing is how deep the story hits my personal life, how the metaphor of an unlikely hero (engaged in a hopeless quest and does not quit) fits, and how the story reaches any age and stage of life. Mixed in the story (and thus the metaphor) are darkness, pain, and the complexities within our hearts.
