Candlewick Press, Sep 8, 2009 - Juvenile Fiction - 224 pages

The #1 NEW YORK TIMES bestseller -- now in a digest edition (Age 7 and up)

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.

This beloved classic is now available in an accessible digest edition with black-and-white interior illustrations.
