Keri reviewed The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane on
Helpful Score: 5
Even though I'm an adult, I enjoyed this book so much. It is the cutest story about a ceramic rabbit doll and his many adventures. I made my mom read it and she absolutely loved it. She can't stop talking about Edward!
Very few books deserve all the praise heaped upon them (I could name names, but ...). THIS book deserves every gold star and every joyful review it has received. I say this rarely, but I LOVED this simple, honest, and unsentimental story. Loved it loved it loved it. I won't even part with my copy of the book. I'd caved to the hype and auto-ordered it, and it sat gathering dust (I'd much rather read than do housework!) for a while; one night I cracked it open ... and was smitten. Treat yourself and order it. That is, if you can get any of us Edward devotees to relinquish our copies!
I read this book aloud to my third grade class at the beginning of each year. They are enthralled. They plead for me to read more often and for longer; some classes have even applauded at the end. It becomes a point of reference to third-graders throughout the year. Old-fashioned, yet fresh; this story is a touchstone for character education lessons.
