A Timeless Tale

"Why should I care what happens to an arrogant,
over-dressed china rabbit?
But I did care, desperately,
and I think I can safely predict you will, too."
----- Katherine Paterson

"The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane" is a book about Edward, a very well dressed china rabbit, with a complete wardrobe of handmade silk suits, pajamas, and clothes for every occasion.

Edward belongs to a little girl who adores him completely. Unfortunately, he feels no emotions towards anyone. Then, in an unexpected event, Edward becomes lost and is found by a series of changing owners. With each new owner, his heart grows in love.

In the end, the question is not can Edward love, but can he love again after the depth of his heartbreak as he loses each owner.

A timeless tale , complete with stunning full-color plates by Bagram Ibatoulline, honors the enduring power of love. Don't pass this book by because it sits in the children's section...this book is for everyone.
