The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane

The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane is about a china rabbit called Edward Tulane who belongs to a ten yeard old girl called Abilene. Edward is a very vain rabbit who is very up himself. He has a whole wardrobe of silk clothes and gold pocket watches. When the Tulane family are leaving their home and moving Abilene's grandmother reads them a story about a princess who never loved just like Edward. When the Tulane family is on board the boat two boys take Edward and throw him overboard. While Edward was sinking to the bottom of the sea he has time to think about what sort of life he has lived, and that he has never loved anyone. Through Edward's journey he learns to love and hate and meets a variety of people including; a sailors wife, a hobo, and he has a variety of different jobs including; puppet scarecrow and many others. During his journey of around seven years he learnt one important lesson it is better to have loved and lost then never to have loved at all. Edward Tulane is a wonderful book about love and loss and out of all I would rate it a seven out of ten.
