My blog, where I post book discussions, reviews, and the occasional writing-related post, is Kittens and Books.

The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane

The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane - Bagram Ibatoulline, Kate DiCamillo Edward’s journey through this story is incredible. He’s given so much personality and I think anyone could identify with the ways he loved and lost. It was hard enough for him to learn to love, but even worse learning to love again and again, overcoming loss and disappointment.

I loved all the characters Edward came to face with, from the fisherman and his wife to the hobo and his dog, but especially the little girls. And the message of this story was so clear and wonderful.

At the beginning I expected this to be a three-star book, but the writing and characters really set it apart from others. And I absolutely adored the ending.

Overall, this was a quick read for me, but it was beautiful. It was filled with love and written truthfully, and I like the fact that readers can relate to Edward – which is important, even though he is a toy rabbit.
