A Journey of a SPOILED stuffed rabbit starts with one perilous fall.

The Miraculous Journey of Edward TulaneThe Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane  

We read this book by Kate DiCamillo some time ago now - but while thinking of books that we have read the past year, this is one I have to recommend.

I enjoyed this book - and I will admit to a few tears at the end of the story.  I was actually mopping my eyes with tissues.  My kids didn't quite get all the nuances of the story - they heard the adventures and misadventures of a rabbit.  I don't think they even picked up any of the dysfunctional family elements.

The story is really about the journey many of us take - through our own selfishness and the people we come into contact with as we realize what is really important in life:

To truly love others and to be truly loved.
