The Tale of Despereaux

(3) 4-6 Illustrated by Timothy Basil Ering. DiCamillo's Newbery Medal–winning tale is printed in a large trim size and presented in an attractive slipcase. The entire package is quite handsome, though one could argue that the original edition looks more old-fashioned and humble and better suited to a story about the travails of an adventurous mouse.
