The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane Author:Kate DiCamillo, Bagram Ibatoulline (Illustrator) 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 treated him with the utmost care and adored him completely. — And then, one day, he was lost. — Kate DiCamillo takes us on an extraordinary journey, from the dept... more »hs of the ocean to the net of a fisherman, from the top of a garbage heap to the fireside of a hoboes' camp, from the bedside of an ailing child to the streets of Memphis.

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.
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 work at a library, so I read a lot of children's and young adult books. I love this book. It is my favorite children's book. It has amazing illustrations (minature paitings in color). Kate DiCamillo is an excellent writer. I reccomend all her books. I read this whole book in 2-3 hours, waiting for jury duty to start, and I cried several times from emotions in this book. I was trying to wipe away the tears and keep my breathing normal, so no one would notice my crying about a book. I told all 3 of my kids to read it. They all loved it. I buy extra copies and give them to friends and relatives. Enjoyable for all ages: 5 to 105.
