Reaction: Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane

The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo. Illustrated by Bagram Ibatoulline. Candlewick Press, Cambridge, MA, 2006.

Most Excellent; highly recommend for children (6+ yrs [?]) and adults. It reminds me somewhat of O Wilde's short stories and M Craven's I Heard the Owl Call My Name.

The frontspiece quote is from Stanley Kunitz's "The Testing-Tree":

[T]he heart breaks and breaks
and lives by breaking.
It is necessary to go
through dark and deeper dark
and not to turn.


Edward is a china rabbit who feels hardly anything for hardly anyone. He goes through dark and deeper dark and learns to live by breaking. I enjoyed following his journey and think it was good for my soul.

Glad you enjoyed. There is indeed a certain charm in his unclimatic and random journey.

"I have been using Advanced Gain Pro for 3 months now and I must say I'm simply amazed. I really didn't think the product would have this many benefits. I really only purchased the pills to help the reliability of my erections. But to my surprise every aspect of my penis and sex life has improved. I have larger, harder erections easily, and I can really satisfy my girlfriend fully now."
