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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane "

    This is Sarah and Caitlin and we loved this book because it made us feel good about ourselves. We felt like we were part of the story. When Edward was on his journey he felt like he might never be loved again. He pushed through and he made it home.

    Sarah age 8, Caitlin age 6.

    "Not just for kids"
    What made the experience of listening to The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed the story very much. Almost cried at the end when Edward finally returned home. It is such a warm and sweet story about love, trust and endurance. There IS hope in life.

    "Delightful touching story for any age"

    A delightful and touching story for any age. If you have a heart, you will likely both laugh and cry. This story is worthy of the adjective, classic.

    Story
    "One of the best readers I've ever heard."

    What a lovely little story. And equally lovely reader. Very special. The story is too short for me to elaborate and I wouldn't want to ruin it but I agree with the previous positive reviewers compare this to the velveteen rabbit. It's just engaging and lovely and wonderful book to listen to if you're feeling down.
