Book Description

6 Mar 2006
A timeless tale by the incomparable Kate DiCamillo, complete with stunning full-color plates by Bagram Ibatoulline, honors the enduring power of love.

"Someone will come for you, but first you must open your heart. . . ."

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 hoboes' camp, from the bedside of an ailing child to the bustling streets of Memphis. And along the way, we are shown a true miracle — that even a heart of the most breakable kind can learn to love, to lose, and to love again.

By ELH Browning VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Short chapters of beautiful prose follow this rabbit from his haughty beginnings as the conceited and self-centred china rabbit who belongs to a privileged little girl. He is immaculately looked after, has his own place setting at the table and is dressed in fine clothes, a beauty to behold. However, Edward is a proud and unlikeable rabbit who doesn't appreciate the little girls's love for him. Her Grandma is disappointed by the rabbit and tells him the tale of princess who never felt the loved lavished upon her, a tale which he thinks over again and again throughout the journey that follows.
Travelling aboard a cruise liner, Edward falls overboard and is finally rescued by a fisherman. He is looked after by his wife but he is cruelly taken from them. His adventures then take him across the United States with a tramp and his dog, but once again he is separated from his companions, a rabbit who now appreciates the value of friends. My daughter (7) particularly enjoyed it when Edward moved from stage to stage, being given a different and often amusing new name in each. He finally finds happiness as Jangles with a chronically-ill little girl who then dies, and Edward is humbled to have found and lost a true love. Does he have the strength to carry on?
There is sadness along the way with each of the very different characters who take care of Edward but during the journey, Edward learns the value of companionship, friends and love. My daughter is often very sensitive to sad issues in stories - however with this book I found the simplicity of the narrative, the brevity of the chapters and the gently lyrical prose seemed to contain the depth of her sadness because the story kept moving on at a good pace.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Absolute Classic 7 Jan 2007
Format:Hardcover
I read this book aloud to my 8 year old daughter over a number of days. We were both captivated by the storyline and at the end my daughter said she wished the book could go on forever! I can honestly say it is one of the best childrens books I have ever read and highly recommend it (so does my daughter). One word of warning - the book includes the death of a child, more sensitive children will find this upsetting. That said the book is one of the most rewarding books I (and my daughter) have ever read. In recognition of that I was inspired to write my first ever Amazon review! We will remember and treasure this book always.

4.0 out of 5 stars A really great book 5 May 2009
A Kid's Review
Format:Paperback
I am nearly 10 and I really thought this book a truly beautiful novel. Edward really was a vain and ignorant soul at the beginning of his adventure but he did really learn his lesson from being under the sea! I think he really did understand love in the end. Read it because it is a touching experience to make you think.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely fabulous book 16 Aug 2008
A Kid's Review
Format:Paperback
(review written by my daughter)"This book is the greatest book I have ever read. I am only 9 but I really, really liked it. Some parts are sad but most of it is happy especially the ending. I read it over a string of 2 nights because I couldn't put it down. The death if of the little girl, Sarah Ruth, was really upsetting the way the author described it. It made me feel really, really sad, I felt like I was the little boy called Bryce, but the way the auther writes it makes you feel sad but also gives you a warm feeling inside you knowing that the little boy tries to go on knowing about his sister and tries to make her happy so that she dies with a happy life. I really liked the story, one of the best books I have ever read. I would recommend it to everyone up to 100. I have asked my mum to read it now as I know she will enjoy it too!!"

5.0 out of 5 stars The most memorable story ever! 25 July 2009
By Lynne
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read this to my daughters who were aged 6 and 8 at the time. We read one or two chapters each night, as sometimes I had to move on to a happier chapter before they slept. It really awakens emotions, and when we finally reached the end we were all in tears as it was just the most perfect ending. I have recommended it to many people as I think it is one of the finest pieces of junior fiction ever written, but have the tissues handy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Edward Tulane 20 May 2006
Format:Hardcover
This is a book for anyone with a heart. It is the story of Edward, a china rabbit who has everything, but he fnds life boring and everyone around him ordinary. Everyone, except for himself. One day he gets lost and on his many journeys learns what it means to love.

Although this is classed as a childrens book I would urge everyone to read it. It is beautifully illustrated, and beautifully written. Although it is very sad it is also a story with a great moral. It made me cry but it also made me smile and I will definately be recommending it to others.

Simply fabulous!
