Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"...another flawlessly written beauty of a book....Short chapters...are interspersed with lovely sepia-toned and full-color illustrations that are just as evocative as this masterfully told tale." Child

Review:

"DiCamillo tucks important messages into this story and once more plumbs the mystery of the heart." Booklist

Synopsis:

The Newbery Medal-winning author of The Tale of Despereaux returns with this story about a toy rabbit named Edward Tulane. When he becomes lost, Edward takes an extraordinary journey and shows readers a true miracle. Illustrations.

Synopsis:

Trapped in a toy store?

Sounds like a mission for four furry friends.

Bertie, Susan, and the Misfit Menagerie—Smalls the sun bear, Rigby the Komondor dog, and Wombat the wombat—have at long last escaped from evil Grand Master Claudes Most Magnificent Circus and are finally free to live life at their leisure. But theres something missing. Something thats keeping them from moving on. Or rather, someone. Tilda the Angora rabbit—and fourth member of the Misfit Menagerie—is being held captive at Toddles Toy Emporium, a massive toy store more impressive than even F.A.O. Schwarz.

Now Bertie, Smalls, and the gang—including a sword-wielding hedgehog—must embark on a quest to rescue their kidnapped friend, braving the mean streets of Hollyhoo City and the bratty Chrysantheum Toddle. Its a journey that will take them over an actual clay rainbow, force them to hide among stuffed animals in a life-like jungle, and lead them to soar above the ground in a hot-air balloon—all big tasks for animals who only recently saw that there was a world outside of Mr. Mumfords farm. But if theyre valiant enough, they just might reunite the menagerie and find themselves a new home.

Synopsis:

Four animals must find their ticket out of the circus.

  • Smalls the sun bear
  • Tilda the Angora rabbit
  • Rigby the Komondor dog
  • and Wombat the wombat
. . . are the four animals that make up "the misfit menagerie."

Together theyve always lived a happy life on Mr. Mumfords farm. That is, until one fateful evening when Mumford, loopy from elderberry wine, accidentally loses them to the dastardly circus owner Grande Master Claude. Suddenly, these animals are forced to perform death-defying tricks and live in filthy, cramped cages as members of Claudes traveling circus. But all hope is not lost! Claudes nephew Bertie and his friend Susan, a circus acrobat, are equally fed up with Claudes evil ways, and together they might just have what it takes to find their ticket out of the circus.

This book may seem as though it was written for children, but it is truly a delightful read for all ages.

This is easily Kate DiCamillo's masterpiece - the story of a china rabbit who loves no one, is lost from those who loves him, and, only then, realizes what it is like to love - and to have those you love stolen from you.

From Nell, an old woman who lost a child, to a hobo and his dog, who are constantly wandering, to the heartbreaking story of Sarah Ruth, a dying girl, who perhaps loves Edward most of all.

All the characters find their way into your heart - from the nastiest, to the warmest. This book is quite short, and, oddly, double spaced, so reading it is a breeze. I would recommend this to everyone of all ages - this is one of those stories that you are never too old for.

My son is reading above his grade level and his enrichment teacher was kind enough to suggest this book . Absolutely loved this book as it teaches many valuable lessons of life while having a happy ending. In this age of sugar coated children's literature, this books stands out for not only teaching the importance of love and the value of being loved and also most importantly , for not giving up on love.It's an incredible journey of a china rabbit from a life of wealth to the bottom of the ocean, from the sweet love of the fisher man's family to spending months buried in the garden dump , from th companionship of a hobo and his dog to providing comfort to an ailing child, from dancing in the streets of Memphis to being reunited with your love. Love triumphs !!

I laughed; I cried; I read and re-read it, both alone and to groups of students; and I've recommended this book to hundreds of children and their parents. As the librarian at an elementary school, I have the honor and privilege of reading children's literature and passing on a love of reading. This story of a toy rabbit learning to love and to believe in love, even as his life's circumstances change, is a character-building story that will help young children to understand the ups and downs of life, and will help old, wizened adults to remember and appreciate those who have helped them become the grownups that they are now. The last page, the epilogue, always makes me cry --- but they are tears of joy, discovery, surprise, and revelation. But don't read it first! Savor the full story, and reward yourself by finally reading and completing the story's circle of life.
