The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane

I very much enjoyed this children's book by Kate DiCamillo. I think it's my favorite of the books I've read that she's written. It's really a very simple story about a china rabbit who learns to love through his many adventures and mishaps. It reminded me vaguely of The Velveteen Rabbit, but it isn't really like that story at all.

The illustrations are beautiful and the book itself is a pleasure to read. It's like reading an old-fashioned book and the story is a bit old-fashioned too, but that doesn't take anything away from it. Recommended.

It reminded me of The Velveteen Rabbit, too.
