The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane

By Kate DiCamillo
Illustrated by Bagram Ibatoulline

The #1 New York Times bestseller is available in paperback! This timeless tale by the incomparable Kate DiCamillo, complete with stunning illustrations by Bagram Ibatoulline, honors the enduring power of love.

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 hoboes' 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.

About the author

Kate DiCamillo was born in Philadelphia and moved with her family to Florida when she was five years old. In her twenties, Kate DiCamillo moved to Minnesota. It was this dislocation from her home that inspired Kate to write her first novel, "Because of Winn-Dixie". An immediate commercial and critical success, "Because of Winn-Dixie" went on to become a Newbery Honour Book in 2001 and was subsequently made into a film that was released in 2005. But that wasn t enough for Kate, and she went on to win the Newbery Medal in 2004 for her book "The Tale of Despereaux", a story about an unlikely hero. This was followed by another unusual tale with "The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane", a story about a china rabbit who learns about love. Kate has also written a series of early chapter-book readers about a lovable pig named Mercy Watson and her fun adventures. Kate lives in Minneapolis, where she faithfully writes two pages a day, five days a week.
