Miraclulous Journey of Edward Tulane: A Review

How could I serve as an elementary librarian for three years before finally reading this book? It's amazing. Rabbit Edward Tulane is proud: proud of his beautiful real porcelain skin, his expensive clothing, and his real rabbit fur ears. When he falls overboard a ship, he begins a beautiful journey from owner to owner, finding out what it means to love.

The slow, easy pace matches the slow discovery Edward makes. Children will like the short chapters, each one about the next owner. Some are sweet, some are funny, and some are quite sad, but each one touches Edward and the reader alike. The pictures are beautiful and add to the story.

Kids and adults alike will enjoy this tale.
