The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo
Following suit with the timeless tradition of morally driven children's books, this story not only delivers, it excels.
You're immediately introduced to the narcissistic and emotionally void china doll rabbit, Edward Tulane, who doesn't appreciate the unwavering affection of his ten year old human companion.
Edward's journey of personal growth is refreshingly realistic. Surviving years of solitude on the bottom of the ocean, burial in a landfill, traveling with a vagabond and escaping a drunkard, Edward learns love and appreciation at a steady and believable pace. People do not change over night and Edward's story of redemption is a testament to that important life lesson.
Enriched by a handful of heart warming illustrations along the way, the journey of Edward Tulane comes to a sweetly surprising and satisfying end.
Whether read by an adult or child, you'll finish this story with a more thankful and sentimental heart.
