From the Publisher
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.
About the Author
KATE DICAMILLO is the author of THE TALE of DESPEREAUX which
received the Newbery Medal; BECAUSE of WINN-DIXIE, which received a
Newbery Honor; THE TIGER RISING, which was named a National Book
Award Finalist; and, most recently, the MERCY WATSON stories. She
says, "One Christmas, I received an elegantly dressed toy rabbit as
a gift. I brought him home, placed him on a chair in my living
room, and promptly forgot about him. A few days later, I dreamed
that the rabbit was face-down on the ocean floor - lost, and
waiting to be found. In telling THE MIRACULOUS JOURNEY OF EDWARD
TULANE, I was lost for a good long while, too. And then, finally,
like Edward, I was found."

experience to work on the illustrations for EDWARD TULANE and to be
there with him on his journey. I must admit, I''m a bit wistful now
that I''ve come to the end of this very special book."
