Edward Tulane Quotes
Once, in a house on Egypt Street, there lived a rabbit who was made almost entirely of china. He had china arms and china legs, china paws and a china head, a china torso and a china nose. His arms and legs were jointed and joined by wire so that his china elbows and china knees could be bent, giving him much freedom of movement. His ears were made of real rabbit fur, and beneath the fur, there were strong, bendable wires, which allowed the ears to be arranged into poses that reflected the rabbit's mood-jaunty, tired, full of ennui. His tail, too, was made of real rabbit fur and was fluffy and soft and well shaped. The rabbit's name was Edward Tulane, and he was tall.
He saw the stars. But for the first time in his life, he looked at them and felt no comfort.

Although that tale was about something dark—depression and loss of hope— The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane is darker and the hope is much more subtle. I cannot wait to hear what my seven-year-old thinks of both. Edward Tulane is a three-foot tall china rabbit with real rabbit fur ears and an extensive wardrobe of silk clothes and a gold pocket watch. He belongs to young Abilene, who adores him and talks to him, dresses him, and protects him until the day aboard a ship when young boys get him and he ends up at the bottom of the ocean. Edward had previously spent his days thinking how fine he was and now he spent his days thinking how badly treated he was.
Too late, thought Edward as Bryce climbed the pole and worked at the wires that were tied around his wrists. I am nothing but a hollow rabbit. Too late, thought Edward as Bryce pulled the nails out of his ears. I am only a doll made of china. Perhaps, he thought, it is not too late, after all, for me to be saved. But for the first time in his life, he looked at them and felt no comfort.
