"Edward Tulane does go on a miraculous journey, but the real miracle is how he is changed. From the bottom of the sea to a dump and beyond, this once glorious and much-loved china rabbit captured my attention immediately and took me with him on his amazing travels. With him I felt elegant, broken, frightened, hopeful, lonely, and ultimately happy. I was sad each time Edward lost someone and moved by what he learned about caring and love. I want to read this enchanting tale out loud to someone sitting on my lap, and together we will predict what the next adventure will be as we look at the charming pictures that introduce each chapter. This beautiful treasure, with the creativity and artistry of Kate DiCamillo and illustrator Bagram Ibatoulline, is a story for readers of all ages, who will be reminded about what it means to be human."

— Connie S. Zitlow, Professor, Ohio Wesleyan University; Editor of Lost Masterworks of Young Adult Literature; Past President of A.L.A.N

"Perhaps no other current American children's book writer has appeared on the scene so quickly or so brightly as Kate DiCamillo. . . . DiCamillo's latest novel, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane, may well be her best. . . . One reading is hardly enough to savor the rich philosophical nuances of DiCamillo's story. I think I will go read it again right now."
