The world is dark, and light is precious.
Come closer, dear reader.
You must trust me.
I am telling you a story.

A quick digital painting inspired by Kate DiCamillo’s amazing book, The Tale of Despereaux.

If there were books this good around when I was a kid, I may have learned to love reading much earlier.

*Of course there were great books when I was a kid.  Sadly, I had no interest in reading them.
