The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane, by Kate DiCamillo
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 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 bedside of an ailing child to the bustling streets of Memphis.
Along the way, we are shown a miracle — that even a heart of the most breakable kind can learn to love, to lose, and to love again.
“One reading is hardly enough to savor the rich philosophical nuances of DiCamillo’s story. I think I will go read it again right now.” - The New York Times Book Review
“A rare and beautiful book that remains in the soul.” - San Diego Union-Tribune
