In the news:
New Line Cinema has purchased the right to DiCamillo's unpublished--as in March 2006-- new book, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. Given her track record, New Line probably made a good call.
I had the pleasure of reading the beginning of her Tale of Despereaux to a class on Friday and the kids were, as usual, enthralled. I ended up talking about Despereaux with a parent today who had chosen the book as a family read aloud, not once but twice. She said this book was the best book they had EVER shared as a family.
