Product Description

From School Library Journal

Starred Review. Grade 3-6–This achingly beautiful story shows a true master of writing at her very best. Edward Tulane is an exceedingly vain, cold-hearted china rabbit owned by 10-year-old Abilene Tulane, who dearly loves him. Her grandmother relates a fairy tale about a princess who never felt love; she then whispers to Edward that he disappoints her. His path to redemption begins when he falls overboard during the familys ocean journey. Sinking to the bottom of the sea where he will spend 297 days, Edward feels his first emotion–fear. Caught in a fishermans net, he lives with the old man and his wife and begins to care about his humans. Then their adult daughter takes him to the dump, where a dog and a hobo find him. They ride the rails together until Edward is cruelly separated from them. His heart is truly broken when next owner, four-year-old Sarah Ruth, dies. He recalls Abilenes grandmother with a new sense of humility, wishing she knew that he has learned to love. When his head is shattered by an angry man, Edward wants to join Sarah Ruth but those he has loved convince him to live. Repaired by a doll store owner, he closes his heart to love, as it is too painful, until a wise doll tells him that he that he must open his heart for someone to love him. This superb book is beautifully written in spare yet stirring language. The tender look at the changes from arrogance to grateful loving is perfectly delineated. Ibatoullines lovely sepia-toned gouache illustrations and beautifully rendered color plates are exquisite. An ever-so-marvelous tale.–B. Allison Gray, John Jermain Library, Sag Harbor, NY

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Gr. 2-4. As she did in her Newbery Medal Book, The Tale of Despereaux (2004), DiCamillo tucks important messages into this story and once more plumbs the mystery of the heart--or, in this case, the heartless. Edward Tulane is a china rabbit with an extensive wardrobe. He belongs to 10-year-old Abilene, who thinks almost as highly of Edward as Edward does of himself. Even young children will soon realize that Edward is riding for a fall. And fall he does, into the sea, after mean boys rip him from Abilene's hands during an ocean voyage. Thus begins Edward's journey from watery grave to the gentle embrace of a fisherman's wife, to the care of a hobo and his dog, and into the hands of a dying girl. Then, pure meanness breaks Edward apart, and love and sacrifice put him back together--until just the right child finds him. With every person who taouches him, Edward's heart grows a little bit softer and a little bit bigger. Bruised and battered, Edward is at his most beautiful, and beautiful is a fine word to describe the artwork. Ibatoulline outdoes himself; his precisely rendered sepia-tone drawings and color plates of high artistic merit are an integral part of this handsomely designed package. Yet even standing alone, the story soars because of DiCamillo's lyrical use of language and her understanding of universal yearnings. This will be a pleasure to read aloud. Ilene Cooper

This book is a jewel - seriously - it's for everyone and anyone. I'm going to give it to everyone for Christmases to come. It almost makes me want to have children so I can read it to them.

I know they recommend this book for children grade 3-6 but I bought it and read it to my children, ages 6 and 3. We Snuggled in every night for two weeks in January and read about Edward. They didn't miss the TV or ask for the computer. They just enjoyed this wonderful story of a bunny who learns to be "kindful" as my [...] calls him. (kind and thoughtful).

A newspaper article on this book caught my attention because of the picture depicting Edward Tulane hanging like a scarecrow in a vegetable patch! It was such a vivid pictorial rendering of this rabbit, that I purchased the book that same day. Children's books should have at least a few illustrations in order to make the story more "magical" and this book did not disappoint. The words took on a voice of their own and I could feel the story unfolding in all its sadness and happiness. What a wonderful book to read aloud - a book to be cherished! I had tears in my eyes reading the last page in this rabbits journey! This is truly a book that opens your heart! I only wish there actually was an Edward Tulane china rabbit available to purchase.

I remember reading this in elementary school and crying by the end of it. I wasn't able to tear away from the book, and now I've finally gotten my hands on my own copy! The book is about a vain and self-centered rabbit who gets thrown off a ship during his owner's voyage. Throughout the course of the story, he is lost, found, lost again, found again, lost, then finally found. Anybody--no matter what age, should read this book- it's truly a treasure.

I was first introduced to this book from a Korean Drama "My Love from the Star". The male lead Do Min Joon was reading this novel and the drama was trying to make a parallel reference to the bunny's adventure. I was intrigued so I bought this E-book. A very touching story indeed. It definitely warmed my heart at the end of the story (no spoiling the storyline). I would recommend adults and children to read it. Totally worth it!

I purchased this book after reading "The Tale Of Desperaux" to read to my 8 year old son. We cuddle up at bed times and read...this book is so heart touching, at times I cried myself. This book is wonderful and will leave the reader(and listeners) thinking about the things in life that really matter...like love, and embracing life "in the now", the book is a emotional roller coaster, we loved it.

This book is one of my favorite kids' book. My mom read it in her classroom and she cried. We purchased the book here, but we both want an acual Edward Tulane doll. Does anybody know where we could purchase one, or where there is a china rabbit doll that looks similliar to Edward Tulane? Thanks.
