The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo. Review.
I was gifted this book from a dear friend at Christmas and it came to me at just the right time. Books have a way of almost magically doing that. It's the story about a china rabbit toy that lives with a family and who has a young girl owner who adores him. He is very self confident and indulged and really takes things for granted until one day his life changed for the worst and he soon begins to appreciate the little things in life and the people who love him. It's a special book that often gave me a lump in my throat and I recommend it for children and for the grown ups who are still children at heart .
