Add my review for The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane
Once, in a house on Egypt Street, there lived a china rabbit named Edward Tulane. The rabbit was very pleased with himself, and for good reason: he was owned by a girl named Abilene, who treated him with the utmost care and adored him completely. And then, one day, he was lost. Kate DiCamillo takes us on an extraordinary journey, from the depths of the ocean to the net of a fisherman, from the top of a garbage heap to the fireside of a hobos camp, from the bedside of an ailing child to the bustling streets of Memphis. And along the way, we are shown a true miracle: even a heart of the most breakable kind can learn to love, to lose, and to love again.
From the Publisher
THE MIRACULOUS JOURNEY OF EDWARD TULANE is a timeless story told by Newbery-Award winning author Kate DiCamillo. Stunning full-color plates by fine artist Bagram Ibatoulline complement this powerful story about the enduring power of love.
From the Author
KATE DICAMILLO: One Christmas, I received an elegantly dressed toy rabbit as a gift. I brought him home, placed him on a chair in my living room, and promptly forgot about him. A few days later, I dreamed that the rabbit was face-down on the ocean floor lost, and waiting to be found. In telling THE MIRACULOUS JOURNEY OF EDWARD TULANE, I was lost for a good long while, too. And then, finally, like Edward, I was found. BAGRAM IBATOULLINE: It was a singular and most pleasurable experience to work on the illustrations for EDWARD TULANE and to be there with him on his journey. I must admit, Im a bit wistful now that Ive come to the end of this very special book.
