Review

Edward Tulane is an impressive and immaculate china rabbit. Abigail, his owner, adores and cares for him completely, but Edward does not return her love. Edward is self-centred, proud and heartless; he cares nothing for love.

Then, through a series of accidents Edward is separated from Abigail. His fine clothes, pride and his body are damaged as he passes through the hands of a fisherman, a hobo and a farmer's daughter. He learns about love and experiences the pain that comes with loss and death. He wonders if he can bear to risk loving again.

This is an unusual yet well-written and beautifully illustrated story. Edward's journey, both physical and emotional, is movingly told and full of vibrant characters.
