The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane

by Kate DiCamillo
Illustrations by Bagram Ibatoulline

This is the story of Edward Tulane, a china bunny. He's arrogant, proud, and vain. He loves no one but himself. He stays with a girl named Abilene, who pampers and loves him very much. One day, when Abilene's family is traveling to England on a ship, he is accidentally thrown overboard. From there he meets old ladies, learns the constellations from a fisherman, travels with a hobo, comforts a dying girl and her brother and while all this is happening, he learns to love.

The story of Edward Tulane was sad but touching. His journey was truly a miraculous journey. The growth of Edward's character is beautiful. Even though he's just a china bunny and so annoyingly vain, he turns into a really cute character. The illustrations by Bagram Ibatoulline were wonderful. (The cover is amazing.) They're sweet and they match the story very well. As you can see, it's a wonderful book and I recommend it to anyone who likes a pleasant and quick read.
