I loved this book. I read it when I should have been sleeping one night. I got into Kate DiCamillo books in May and wanted to read all of her novels. I saw this one on the shelf and I thought that it was a picture book, so I didn’t pick it up. However, I am so so glad I did. What a heartbreaking story. Edward, the proud bunny, went through what no one (or bunny) should have gone through. A seaside couple, a traveling hobo, a sick boy and girl became his owners. However, he was separated and hurt from them each time. It seemed that Edward should have died because the heartbreak was too much, but he didn’t. He was reunited with the girl who was his original owner.

It is a lovely story!
