Edward is a proud china rabbit belonging to a young girl, Abilene, who loves him dearly and treats him very well. When Edward becomes lost in the ocean and goes through a series of other owners (treated unfairly at times), his heart softens and he comes to understand the meaning of acceptance, love, and hope. This book by Kate DiCamillo would make a wonderful read aloud for the whole family or a classic book for a young reader to enjoy. ~ Gina
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.
