    It is a horrible, terrible thing, the worst thing, to watch somebody you love die right in front of you and not be able to do nothing about itOnce upon a time, there was a poignant and philosophical tale about a solipsistic, egocentric china rabbit named Edward Tulane The rabbit was loved by a little girl named Abilene Albeit loved by his owner, he was incapable of loving others One day, he was magically cursed by Pellegrina, the girl s grandmother who gifted her the narcissistic bunnyIt is a horrible, terrible thing, the worst thing, to watch somebody you love die right in front of you and not be able to do nothing about itOnce upon a time, there was a poignant and philosophical tale about a solipsistic, egocentric china rabbit named Edward Tulane The rabbit was loved by a little girl named Abilene Albeit loved by his owner, he was incapable of loving others One day, he was magically cursed by Pellegrina, the girl s grandmother who gifted her the narcissistic bunny And so begins a miraculous journey full of deep dejections, pervasive melancholy, irrepressible yearning, and finally, finding true love once againOpen your heart Someone will come Someone will come for you But first you must open your heartOnce, there was a rabbit who swore to himself that he would never love again And yet, something happened in that expedition of his that changed his lifeHow many times, Edward wondered, would he have to leave without getting the chance to say goodbye Edward knew what it was like to say over and over again the names of those you had left behind He knew what it was like to miss someoneOnce, there was a story an extraordinary tour de force that broke and mended one s heart with the transformative power of unconditional and boundless love filled with sanguine hope An author, by the name of Kate DiCamillo, penned an unforgettable narrative laden with fundamental themes, lyrical language, and masterful storytelling and thoroughly supplemented with splendid artwork painted by a wondrous illustrator named Bagram Ibatoulline together, they created a breathtaking yet simple, imaginative story that warmed the hearts of adults and children alike Once, oh marvellous once, there was a reviewer whose heart has been touched by a china rabbit, he clutched this book against his broken heart and this simple tale alone filled his eyes with helpless tears He swore to himself that no matter what happens, his heart must go on And so, he found his way home, once againThe heart breaks and breaks and lives by breaking It is necessary to go through dark and deeper dark and not to turn

    I haven t read a novel I absolutely loved from the very first sentence in a long time I always say I have, probably because I want to believe that and anyway, we all do it , but not every book is great and not every great book is exceptional I want exceptional Give me exceptional Kate DiCamillo s The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane is just that It tells the story of little china bunny Edward Tulane who knows not what love means He is loved by a little girl, and yet, he doesn t care H I haven t read a novel I absolutely loved from the very first sentence in a long time I always say I have, probably because I want to believe that and anyway, we all do it , but not every book is great and not every great book is exceptional I want exceptional Give me exceptional Kate DiCamillo s The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane is just that It tells the story of little china bunny Edward Tulane who knows not what love means He is loved by a little girl, and yet, he doesn t care He s self centered and vain But little Edward Tulane will discover what love means the way we all do through loss through life The writing is simply delightfully lyrical Is lyrical writing always delightful Not quite, sometimes it doesn t work One must master the technique fairly well to pull it off I used to think children s books were so, so easy to write anyone could write them but now that I ve read a hundred of them and , I realize that is not the case Otherwise they would all be bestsellers This is, without a single, lonely doubt, my most favourite Kate DiCamillo book It s also the one with the highest ratings on Goodreads, so I m happy to see other people were positively, beautifully affected by this novel like I was I think Kate DiCamillo can do no wrong, but she really surpassed herself with this one Blog Youtube Twitter Instagram Google Bloglovin

    I looked forward to reading this book because, as the review on goodreads of Edward Tulane says, Kate DiCamillo is an incomparable children s author, and I have loved and cried over The Tale of Despereaux and The Tiger Rising in the middle of the Borders Cafe before Edward s journey is miraculous in that the little china rabbit from which the book gets its name learns to love out of his many losses, which starts with losing his straw hat and ends with losing his hardened heart Take the velvete I looked forward to reading this book because, as the review on goodreads of Edward Tulane says, Kate DiCamillo is an incomparable children s author, and I have loved and cried over The Tale of Despereaux and The Tiger Rising in the middle of the Borders Cafe before Edward s journey is miraculous in that the little china rabbit from which the book gets its name learns to love out of his many losses, which starts with losing his straw hat and ends with losing his hardened heart Take the velveteen rabbit, make himfragile by making him the China rabbit, put in Kate DiCamillo s voice behind every word, and you have a new classic for children I m done with being loved, Edward told her I m done with loving It s too painful Open your heart, she said gently Someone will come Someone will come for you But first you must open your heart The door closed The sunlight disappeared Someone will come Edward s heart stirred He thought, for the first time in a long time, of the house on Egypt Street and of Abilene winding his watch and then bending toward him and placing it on his left leg, saying, I will come home to you No, no, he told himself Don t believe it Don t let yourself believe it But it was too late Someone will come for you The China rabbit s heart had begun, again, to open.That s not the end of the story, but it is such an important passage for so many people to read I needed to read it the other day when I sat there in Borders once again, tearing up I ll need to read it again someday, maybe soon And I think it s worth it for most anyone to take 30 minutes at the most, sit down, and read about how a China rabbit learns to love And then learns to love again

    Well written, beautiful, and somber This is the story of a china rabbit who learns the true meaning of love I read this book out loud to my class and truly enjoyed the masterful way that Kate DiCamillo crafts a story Her word choice and sentence fluency found its way into my writing lesson plans to illustrate some of the possibilities waiting to be found in words Would I read it aloud again Perhaps with older students My class LOVED this story but it was sad, extremely sad in places I fou Well written, beautiful, and somber This is the story of a china rabbit who learns the true meaning of love I read this book out loud to my class and truly enjoyed the masterful way that Kate DiCamillo crafts a story Her word choice and sentence fluency found its way into my writing lesson plans to illustrate some of the possibilities waiting to be found in words Would I read it aloud again Perhaps with older students My class LOVED this story but it was sad, extremely sad in places I fought back tears while reading and had to let it sit for awhile before reviewing it because it dealt with some tough material Losing people you love Initially, I thought I would not recommend it nor read it again because it was just too strong However, theI considered this, theI realized that to not recommend this book would be to make the same mistake that Edward made, and that is to refuse to experience something wonderful just because it can also be hard So I do recommend it I do The lessons learned by Edward apply to us all Just consider keeping a box of tissues close by

    I don t question much of what Kate DiCamillo chooses to write about Going with the flow has its rewards I had my doubts whether our five going on six year old would have the same attitude, but she did She stuck with the story, day after day, as this haughty and aloof china and cloth rabbit went through his reversals of fortune Edward begins by caring for no onenot even the little girl who loves and cares for him.In DiCamillo s world, dolls can think and feel and talk We humans just can I don t question much of what Kate DiCamillo chooses to write about Going with the flow has its rewards I had my doubts whether our five going on six year old would have the same attitude, but she did She stuck with the story, day after day, as this haughty and aloof china and cloth rabbit went through his reversals of fortune Edward begins by caring for no onenot even the little girl who loves and cares for him.In DiCamillo s world, dolls can think and feel and talk We humans just can t hear them.Edward is very self involved He likes the fancy clothes in which the little girl dresses him He likes the attention that he is paid by the family Only the little girl s grandmother seems to notice how little he gives back for what he is given.The story is about Edward s journey of misfortune through many different owners and his experiences with how others survive or don t in his world.DiCamillo s magical realism worked for both of us as we waited each day for what would happen next I hope you find it as engaging as we did I should add that the illustrations are a fine match for the prose.4.5
