* AbusiveParents: A recurring theme. All the parents in the book besides Pea's are awful to their kids. Miggery's dad sold her for cheap items, Miggery's mom tells her that nobody cares what she wants right before her death, Despereaux's mom doesn't care about her son being sent to the horrible dungeon, Despereaux's dad actually ''helps'' him go to the dungeon, and Chiaroscuro's parents wanted to sell him for money.

Added DiffLines:

* GoodIsBadAndBadIsGood: Despereaux is not frightened by things that are intended to scare him (like carving knives) and draws a picture of a cat in his notebook, naming it "Fluffy". Such courage and appreciation for cute animals would be considered normal behaviour among humans, but his parents and teachers are shocked and horrified by all this.

A Newberry Award winning {{fantasy}} book for children written by KateDiCamillo. The book itself is split into four separate stories: "A Mouse Is Born," "Chiaroscuro," "Gor! The Tale of Miggery Sow," and "Recalled to the Light." The first three introduce the three threads of the plot and then they are all brought together in the final story.
