The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane

Thoughts tmjofetbykd The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo, Candlewick Press 2006, 200 pages

I read this because a friend in my Instructional Design course was going to write a technology integrated reading comprehension lesson unit based on this story — unfortunately, she had to scrap the idea and eventually worked on a math assignment, instead. But the point is, I was hooked by her description of the tale. I decided my Illinois N&N would like it as an Easter present so I bought this tkdcc collection for them. First, I had to read the book about Edward the Rabbit and his journey. I didn’t end up reading the other three stories – maybe another time.

This is lovely. DiCamillo can write. She can really warm you up to a character, take you along on the adventures and set you up to feel ALL THE FEELINGS, as somebody here in book-bloggerland has so eloquently stated. I cried. In a good way; the way a good book makes one have a good cry. It’s possible that the stress of schoolwork contributed to that good cry so let’s hope it was cathartic.

I loved this book and rate it 5 slices of pie. But maybe not rabbit pie.

    A good book cry is wonderful from time to time!

    I still haven’t read anything by Kate DiCamillo! I swear I will rectify that soon.

      I can’t recall if I’ve really read Because of Winn Dixie or only viewed the movie but I really enjoyed Tale of Desperaux, too. I would say start with this one. :D
