Edward Tulane's journey is a wonderful anecdote for children (and adults) of all ages. A story of loss and love and the feelings inside you that confuse you and become you.

I read it in about an hour and would suggest it as a read along with parents and children.

It is very sad though, so be prepared, but it gives a great opportunity to be aware of your feelings, which may be hard for the young ones to express and recognize.

I love this book it has an amazing moral and a great ending. This book will definitely keep you on your toes.

This is my favorite book in the whole world from when I was nine to thirteen and still going. The ending was amazing and it makes you cry with one special little girl.

I love this book. My mom used to read it to me almost every night when I was little. Such a sad, cute story.

Awesome, very considerate book.

Great book!

I previewed this as a possible read-aloud for my boys. Yes, it's well-written, but retchingly (is that a word?) sappy. This is the sort of book well-meaning adults think kids should read, but I can't possibly imagine my boys enjoying it. Gag!

I have strong mixed feelings about this book. It is beautifully illustrated and well told. At the same time, it smacks of a certain smug morality that I tend to associate with the fairytales of Hans Christian Anderson. Vanity is unattractrive, but I'm not convinced that it's a sin unless and until it leads to actively ignoring the well-being of others. Because I feel ambivalent about the book, I find myself unable to rate it.

Add a Summary

A self-centered rabbit, who cares for nothing but himself, is forced on journey(by a witch), which teaches him how to love.

This book was about a china rabbit who does not know how to love. When the girl who loves him goes on a cruise, all goes overboard as well as Edward. He goes on several journeys and meets several new people that help him love. With an amazing ending, this is one book you must read to take your heart on a lovely soar of how an inanimate object can learn to love.
