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.Read more ›
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.
