This week’s staff pick is “The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane” by Kate DiCamillo. Our staffer loved this book so much she told us all about it for days. Written by the author of “The Tale of Despereaux” and “Because of Winn-Dixie” this book has the same kind of characters who leap off the page and into your heart and never leave.
“Once, in a house on Egypt Street, there lived a china rabbit named Edward Tulane. The rabbit was very pleased with himself, and for good reason: he was owned by a girl named Abilene, who treated him with the utmost care and adored him completely.
And then, one day, he was lost.
Kate DiCamillo takes us on an extraordinary journey, from the depths of the ocean to the net of a fisherman, from the top of a garbage heap to the fireside of a hobos’ camp, from the bedside of an ailing child to the bustling streets of Memphis. And along the way, we are shown a true miracle — that even a heart of the most breakable kind can learn to love, to lose, and to love again.”–Taken from Goodreads.com
