The Tale Of Despereaux Coloring Pages – Friends and Family

This Despereaux coloring page features Despereaux, Princess Pea and Roscuro.

And this printable features the family and their reaction to baby Despereaux.

It looks like we’ve right in the middle of the golden age of 3D animation. Just think – this year alone we’ve had Wall-e, Madagascar 2, Bolt and now The Tale of Despereaux. It used to be that Oscar nominations for a 3D cartoon where a joke. There was Pixar, and then there was no one. Not so now. These other studios are producing pretty high quality entertainment.

The good thing about this recent wave of cartoons is that they are getting the balance right – it’s fun for the kids, and it’s fun for the adults. And I’m keeping my fingers crossed that Despereaux delivers in that department as well.

And isn’t it true that as parents it’s easier for us to print coloring pages of cartoons we actually are happy about our kids watching and loving? I think so. Though there are those few cartoon obsessions that kids around here have that I just don’t get. But I tell myself it’s a stage, and go along anyways. I also found a surprising trend that I never know which picture the kids will like the most. You’d think it’s the one with the most detail, but it could simply be Despereaux with a cheese piece cause the kid likes cheese!

I know… Off topic…

I’ll improve.

More Despereaux coloring pages are coming soon. And less off topic. I promise.

Despereaux’s Roscuro and Princess Pea Coloring Pages

Here is a great free Roscuro Coloring Page. This is a rat with an attitude! So make sure that shows through in the colors.

Something really piraty about Roscuro. The earring, the bandana. And his full name is actually Chiaroscuro. A rat who wants to live in the castle and not in the dungeons. He loves light ( and I hear that love causes a lot of trouble for him and all the other rats…)

And here is another picture of Princess Pea…

Do you think she resembles Emma Watson?

There is something there, but I can’t quite place it.

Anyways, have fun coloring. I have a great picture of Roscuro, Despereaux and Princess Pea coming up in the next post. So stay tuned.
