Publisher's Summary

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 depths 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 bustling streets of Memphis. And along the way, we are shown a true miracle, that even a heart of the most breakable kind can learn to love, to lose, and to love again.

    "Stunning, Healing"

    The story is fun, warm, cathartic, emotionally healing. It opened my heart even more than it already is by considerable trials in life. It is emotionally honest to the point of being painful, but moves along conclusively toward truth, reality and healing. The pain is healing. IT'S FUN. Like the bible, this book has more emotional depth, acuity, and life application than anything I've ever read. I will treasure it and share it with everyone I know. You will disdain, pity, dislike, identify with, cry for, mourn with, and love the very typical and yet charming and unusual Edward Tulane.

    "Beauty out of Brokenness"

    I listened to this book while driving to Atlanta from the MS Gulf Coast. Upon returning home I found that Kate is best friends with an old girlfriend. Working with families and children post-Katrina I thought this book would inspire hope for children who had lost everything. The message, "someone will come for you," echoed throughout my mind as I contacted Kate who graciously had her publisher send 125 copies of the book which was distributed at the local library. This book is a book for children which grounds the child in reality. We live in a world of loss and pain but there is always hope. To loose hope is to loose life. Edward Tulane's journey brought hope to many who lost everything. A truly amazing story.

    "My nine-year-old loved the book"
    Any additional comments?

    My nine-year-old son picked this book out and the two of us listen to it together while working on a fence in our backyard. The story was excellent and it was one we could not stop listening to.

    "Marvelous"

    In the tradition of _The Mouse and His Child_, _The Little Prince_ and _The Velveteen Rabbit_ this is one of those rare and astonishing stories, ostensibly written for children, that work on so many different levels one can't possibly process them all with one listen. Just as Edward Tulane becomes a different doll in each stage of his journey, I expect that this is a different story for everyone who reads it, and each time they read it.

    The only reason for 4 stars rather than 5, is that the first half of the story does get a bit repetitive and even tedious. Still, by the last chapter I was overwhelmed by a level of raw emotion seldom experienced since childhood. I don't believe it is possible to come away from this story unaffected, and it stays with you for a long time after the narration has ended.

    "slow till the end, but 100% worth it"

    it is a beautiful story, however it is the slowest to build that we've heard from Kate DiCamillo so far. We stuck it out till the end and I'm so grateful that I did. the story is absolutely heartwarming and beautiful. it is worth the listen as Judith Ivey does an excellent job bringing the characters to life. I highly recommend listening to this story with your child(ren).

    "So sweet"

    This book was amazingly read, and it was a very sweet book. The book kept us guessing the entire time. We highly recommend this book. The youngest ones in our family enjoyed listening to the book as well. If you want a heart warming story, then this is the book for you.

    Story
    "Everyone should read or listen to this book!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane to be better than the print version?

    The audio version was excellent; I would only recommend people read this book in whatever form they can. It is outstanding.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Edward - how he learns the meaning of love, how to love, and chooses to continue loving through difficult circumstances.


    What about Judith Ivey’s performance did you like?

    She did a great job giving each character a distinct voice and her phrasing/pace was perfect.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed and cried. This is one of those books I wish everyone could read or listen to and re-awaken that part of their heart that has been hurt. We unconsciously close ourselves off to love because of past hurt, and this book is a beautiful, short reminder that opening your heart to love, even when it is excruciatingly painful, yields great rewards.


    Any additional comments?

    I would love to talk with Kate DiCamillo about this book and how she came to write it. There are always stories behind stories, and these fascinate me.
