The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane
Edward Tulane is a china rabbit who lives in a house on Egypt Street with a girl named Abilene. Though she loves him dearly, Edward is too vain and self-centered to care. When Abilene’s family goes on an ocean voyage, Edward is accidentally thrown overboard. After months at the bottom of the ocean, a storm tosses him into a fisherman’s net, and Edward’s extraordinary odyssey begins. As years pass, Edward lives with a grieving older couple, a hobo and his dog, a young boy and his ailing sister, and many others, listening and learning along the way. “And in his listening, his heart opened wide and then wider still.” Based on Kate DiCamillo’s beautiful novel, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane is a potent reminder that even a heart of the most breakable kind can learn to love, to lose, and to love again.
