A classic tale by Newbery Medalist Kate DiCamillo, America’s beloved storyteller.
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 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 bedside of an ailing child to the bustling streets of Memphis. Along the way, we are shown a miracle — that even a heart of the most breakable kind can learn to love, to lose, and to love again.
Featuring black-and-white illustrations and a refreshed cover by Bagram Ibatoulline.
Just because it’s intended for a younger audience doesn’t mean there isn’t something worthwhile in there for us all.

One reading is hardly enough to savor the rich philosophical nuances of DiCamillo’s story. I think I will go read it again right now.
—The New York Times Book Review
This achingly beautiful story shows a true master of writing at her very best.
—School Library Journal (starred review)
The story soars because of DiCamillo's lyrical use of language and her understanding of universal yearnings. This will be a pleasure to read aloud.
