Experience the life-changing journey of Edward Tulane, a china rabbit who travels the world and learns how to love. Kidzworld reviews Kate DiCamillo’s powerful book, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane.

Author: Kate DiCamillo

Edward Tulane was an arrogant china rabbit who didn’t know how to love. He was too busy staring at his own reflection to appreciate his owner—a little girl named Abilene. That is, until the day he lost her.


Rabbit Overboard

When Abilene and her family went on a cruise, a bully grabbed Edward and tossed him overboard. Confused and lonely, Edward sunk to the bottom of the sea…and waited. It wasn’t until many years later that Edward returned to shore, caught in a fisherman’s net. The gentle fisherman took him home to his wife, who cleaned him up, put him in a dress and renamed him Susannah.


Learning to Appreciate

At first, Edward was humiliated. After all, he was not a girl. But as time passed, he appreciated the company, no matter what they called him. But when the fisherman’s daughter arrived in town, she had no patience for her parents’ toy rabbit. She tossed Edward away and he landed in the dump, buried beneath the heavy, smelly garbage.


A Lifetime of Friendships

And so Edward’s story continued. He was lost and found many times over the years, finding companionship with a fisherman and his wife, a hobo and his dog, and a little boy and his dying sister. But he never forgot about Abilene, the little girl who loved him so very much.


The Bottom Line

Kate DiCamillo, the bestselling author of The Tale of Despereaux, has outdone herself with this breathtaking book. The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane will surly become a classic. It'll change the way you view the world. You’ll learn the importance of love, family and friendship, and wish you had a china rabbit of your own. It’s the kind of book you’ll undoubtedly pass onto your children, the kind you’ll remember forever.

    In a recent interview with The PUNCH, the ‘Clinic Matters’ star said “I cannot act ude but like I have said before, if you pay me about $50m, I will. Please who is the first to pay? I can shave my hair because I’m an actress. If the role requires it, if it is a beautiful script and the money is good, I will do it. It will not be because it is the trend. It is not because Mercy Johnson did it, so I should, no, that is not enough reason. Right now, the script has to be outstanding for me to be interested in shaving off my hair.” On growing up, she said “I was a stubborn kid. I was never a tomboy. I don’t know how to bounce or sag for the world but stubborn, fighting for my rights and the rights of others, yes. I always wanted to defend others in need. That’s why often, they used to say I knew how to ‘buy’ other people’s matter. But my friends would say I had and will always have the heart of a child because no matter how much I fight you, I’ll always feel bad and be the first to tell you sorry.”If its you re you going to accept it nor reject it.  ALL I NEED IS TRUTH ANSWER  STATE  YOUR ANSWER BELOW THE SPACES. ........................................................................................................................................ ......................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................                                                                                             Sign by Desmond

    Like Kirsten said, do Windows updates first (From the start menu select 'Control Panel', then 'System and Security' (or something similar) then 'Windows updates'. After installing them the windows logo should appear in the bottom right of the screen

    I haven't got the choice to update.. If you have windows 7 or 8, make sure the latest updates for your computer are installed. A "get windows 10 app" should appear on the toolbar, bottom right. Click that, reserve your copy, and it'll download and eventually notify you to install.  To get mine, I had to manually check for and install updates from the web first. My mom's had it already there. It all depends on your windows updates.
