This is the story of Desperaux Tilling, a
mouse in love with music, stories, and a princess named Pea. It is also
the story of Miggery Sow, a slow-witted serving girl with a simple,
impossible wish. 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.
