Edward Tulane is a fine china rabbit. Always dressed to the nines and absolutely adored by a young girl named Abilene, Edward has it made. Until one day, he’s lost. The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane follows Edward on just that — a miraculous journey around the world, where he learns what it means to feel loss, and how to truly feel love. A poignant and transformative read about the power of love.
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.
Featuring black-and-white illustrations and a refreshed cover by Bagram Ibatoulline.
