A classic tale by Newbery Medalist Kate DiCamillo, America’s beloved storyteller. 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 illustrations and a refreshed cover by Bagram Ibatoulline, as well as an excerpt of Kate DiCamillo's newest novel, Raymie Nightingale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tul The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane is a fantastic book for kids 8 to 12 years of age. It teaches you about love, hope and how you should always be thankful for what you have, because someone always has a worse life than you do. This book will leave you with a bitter-sweet mixture of happiness and sadness, but most of all you will feel grateful no matter how bad your life seems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from "Fantastic" Kate, you've out done yourself in this book as almost every page I read, it's like it gave a tear to my eye, and this is the same guy who still thinks the Hunger Games isn't that violent. But this is a really funny, sad and adventurous story and the writing just makes you silent and so into the book like you were born just to read this book. A masterpiece of everything a book should look like on the shelf. TheBookReviewer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely riveting My 10 year old daughter received this book from my parents for Christmas last year (at age 9). I read it to her, she loved it and has since had it read to her and her class by the school librarian upon her recommendation! Last weekend she read it for herself and couldn't put it down. She loved it so much she is doing a book talk on it for school. I would recommend it to anyone! A very well written and the illustrations are fabulous. We are now looking for a sequel! Thank you for such a marvelous adventure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delightful and touching This is a great book for a kid to read to him/herself. But if you are like me, you will want to read it with him. It is a well written, smart story about life, loss and love that appealed to my 8 year old and to his 40 year old mother! I wish there were more stories like this around. A simply wonderful book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Miraculous Reading Journey DiCamillo's The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane is a modern classic. It is the beautiful journey of a stiff and pious china rabbit named Edward Tulane. Edward is quite selfish. Although the little girl Abilene who owns Edward loves him very much, Edward himself does not reciprocate these sentiments. Edward's primary concern is himself and that those around him think so as well. One day as Abilene and her family are on a boat, Edward meets fate head-on in the form of a unfortunate disaster. Over the course of Edward's journey, he encounters many interesting characters who unknowingly show Edward what it means to give your love away. Dicamillo's words combined with Ibatoulline's illustrations are magical. This book is a permanant fixture to my coffee table and a perfect gift for a reader of any age. Thank you DiCamillo for this extraordinary adventure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Beautiful Nursery Tale Award winner DiCamillo's latest book is a story of love and friendship. It features the china rabbit doll Edward as he journeys from place to place and family to family. As he progresses he learns love and appreciation for each home. This book uses all the best tools of childrens literature to tell the story of a toy who learns how important it is to be part of a loving family. Despite a predicatable ending, this book will delight any child (or parent) who can identify with the message of family.
