The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane is a very highly rated book. It has a rating of 4.5 stars over 332 reviews, so it must be good. In fact, it won the 2006 Boston Globe-Horn Book Award in Fiction.
It is a children’s book that is entertaining for parents too. Here is the description that Amazon gives:
Grade 3-6–Edward Tulane, a china rabbit, is the main character in this thoughtful tale by Kate DiCamillo (Candlewick, 2006). Edward is dearly loved by a young girl named Abilene. One day he is lost over the side of a boat. His journey leads him to a older couple who dress him like a girl rabbit, a hobo and his dog, a young girl and her brother and, finally, to a doll shop. Along the way, Edward learns to love the people he encounters. He also learns that family members can be cruel to one another; that hobos have family that they love dearly and don’t want to forget; that no matter how much you love someone, she may still die; and that no matter what happens in life, never give up on love.
