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!
A well-written and beautifully illustrated book, this story will take you places you have never been through the eyes of a china rabbit. Be cautious when reading the last chapter, however. It will be quite a present from the author when you realize the carefully crafted ending she has in store for you! I was mesmerized.
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.
