More Kate DiCamillo news

It appears as though The Tale of Despereaux will be hitting the big screen, making this Kate DiCamillo's second book to be turned into a movie. (Third, counting her forthcoming novel--to be published in 2006--The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane, which will also be making the book-to-screen transition.) There aren't any details yet about the film, except that it is slated for release sometime in 2006. Despereaux is such an unusual book, I'm curious to see how well it will work in movie form.
