tale of desperaux

have you read the book
the Tale of Desperaux?
it is the story of a mouse 
with VERY large ears.

my daughter, Annie, had a school party
the last week of school,
where she had to dress up like a character
from a book.
and she picked Desperaux.

so we made some l a r g e ears
and a red sash for the belt,
with a giant paper needle
tied around her waist...

and it was darling.
and yet, she would not let me
photograph her...
in the outfit
as most tween girls
would not.

but i had to show these darling ears off...
so i threw them on my silly head
and snap, snap...

reduced my pride to zero
to show you these darling things.
