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.

This is a Child's book. This should not be ONLY a child's book. It does give every reader, no matter a kid or an adult, the courage to start their own miraculous journey again....Continua Nascondi

I loved this book. When I received it, I was hesitant thinking that a story about a toy rabbit would be less than satisfactory. I couldn't have been more incorrect. I loved this story so much. It really struck a chord deep inside. There wasn't a single thing I hated except the parts that had to be sad. It is such a heartfelt journey that the reader goes on with Edward. I felt so connected the entire time. I remember when I was young, I loved dolls and treated them like his first owner treated him. The second thing I connected with in this book was how upset the young boy was when Edward became broken. I remember loving my dolls so much, that when they broke, I would have done anything to have them back to the way they were. The final thing I connected to was a quote that one doll said that basically said that a dolls job is to love unconditionally if you don't plan on doing that, then the whole journey is pointless. That is such a deep thing to have in a children's book. It's simple enough for all to understand deeply. This book was actually recommended to me by one of my students. He is a student who is not a reader, and is more into sports books. I was really surprised at how much he loved this book. I would use this in my classroom by having them read about change in a characters personality and character. We would discuss how it affects the way the reader perceives the rest of the book's world. ...Continua Nascondi
