Book Description

July 28 2009
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.

Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-6–Edward Tulane, a china rabbit, is the main character in this thoughtful tale by Kate DiCamillo (Candlewick, 2006). Edward is dearly loved by a young girl named Abilene. One day he is lost over the side of a boat. His journey leads him to a older couple who dress him like a girl rabbit, a hobo and his dog, a young girl and her brother and, finally, to a doll shop. Along the way, Edward learns to love the people he encounters. He also learns that family members can be cruel to one another; that hobos have family that they love dearly and don't want to forget; that no matter how much you love someone, she may still die; and that no matter what happens in life, never give up on love. Tony Award-winner Judith Ivey infuses each character that Edward encounters with a unique accent and aura, and accurately portrays their emotions. A beautifully crafted telling.–Veronica Schwartz, Des Plaines Public Library, IL

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

5.0 out of 5 stars One for the books! April 14 2008

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book to be cherished April 20 2006
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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.

Could not get into this at all! Found the beginning slow and boring and never got hooked. Didn't get past the half way point.

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.
