Edward Tulane has everything a china rabbit could wish for—hand-made silk suits, shoes of the finest leather, a gold pocket watch, and a ten-year-old girl who adores him. But Edward feels nothing for Abilene or her parents or her grandmother. He is pleasant and polite to them, but his heart is cold. He cannot love them in return.

When the family goes on an ocean voyage, Edward falls overboard and drops to the bottom of the sea. And his heart-aching journey begins.

First, a fisherman rescues him from the deep, but his mean daughter throws him in the trash. Then a hobo pulls him from the garbage dump but loses him. A nasty old woman finds Edward and uses him as a scarecrow in her corn fields until he is rescued by an abused boy.

As Edward goes from owner to owner and from one misfortune to the next, he starts feeling powerful emotions he never felt before—gratitude, concern…and love.

But will Edward survive his journey? Will he finally learn his lesson before it’s too late? Will he ever see Abilene and her family again?

Experience Edward’s miracle with him in this tender and sensitive book.

"The story soars because of DiCamillo's lyrical use of language and her understanding of universal yearnings. This will be a pleasure to read aloud."—Booklist, starred review
