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.
