These characters are about to embark on a journey that will lead them down into a horrible dungeon, up into a glittering castle, and ultimately into each other's lives. And what happens then? The cover has a frame with Despereaux printed on it. There is very light wear on the bottom corners and spine. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall

Fearing for his safety, she leaves the babe to be raised in secret, then gives birth to her own daughter and returns to Avalon. Traitors suspect that the lost heir is still alive, and seek to end the threat of the boy's power. Years pass and the boy returns, faced with a formidable task - to prove his worth as a son of the kings and priestesses of Avalon and lead his followers to victory wielding the legendary sword Excalibur. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
