This is a one page, printable crossword based on Kate Dicamillo's Newbery Award-winning novel "The Tale of Despereaux."
It is a great activity to be completed after reading the novel. There are sixteen clues covering vocabulary, characters, and events from the book, for example:
Clue: The ability to share someone else’s feelings
Clue: This story's villain
