While I enjoyed the author's writing style and the ending of the story, I was underwhelmed by Edward's "journey" and the theme of the book. I expected more of an adventure where Edward learns to love and found a series of unfortunate and sad events for Edward. I understand that the author's intent was to show Edward's character change from a vain, self-centered rabbit to one with love in his heart. But even at the end of the book, he was mostly still filled with despair and sadness over his lost owners and maybe a bit hopeful. I also don't agree with the theme that in order to learn to love, he first needed to experience sadness, despair, injuries, and death. This is obviously totally my own perspective. I have a sensitive child and I actually don't care for completely serious/sad books and movies, perhaps if there had been more uplifting moments it might have balanced out all the misfortune and been more enjoyable for us.
This book is a children's book, a lesson in life and loving, tells of heart break and loss, of being selfish and then knowing what real love means. And it also shows us to appreciate all that happens in our life and the people that we meet and our experiences, as they help us to grow and be what we should be.

This heart-warming, gentle and sweet book will fill you with awe. It is a must have in every school library. Experience the one in a lifetime adventure with missing porcelain rabbit, Edward Tulane.
Edward Tulane lives with young, caring owner Abilene. She shares all her love for Edward yet he doesn’t give her anything but silence. During the story, Abilene’s much loved parents announce to their daughter that they are going to take a vacation as a family. Of course, Abilene wouldn’t leave her beloved rabbit; whilst on the ship, Edward despondently gets thrown into the water by a cluster of disobedient boys. And that’s when the miraculous journey began.
I recommend this book to nine year olds and over since there are some tragic scenes. As well as that, I chose this book because it is full of escapades and a sweet friendship-these are the genres I personally love. I love how authors give a human characteristic to toys and animals like Varjak Paw.
Review by Anesa, 11 years old.
This is a book about a china Rabbit (soft teddy) called Edward Tulane he lives with a girl called Abilene her parents and her grandmother Peligrena although he is a toy he has feelings he feels like Abilene doesn’t care about him then one day Abilene and her family and Edward were going on holiday they travelled by boat two boys saw Edward and snatched him from Abilene they were throwing it around and Edward dropped in the ocean. Read the book to find out what happens to Edward and where he is.
I like this book because it interests me and brings me into the story.
The book was a class book so we read it together.
The message in this story is always love the ones who love you or you will lose them.
The genre in the story is young adult fiction.
I recommend this book to children 9 and over because this book contains a scene of death younger children might get upset by that.
Reviewed by Saniya, 10 years old
“You disappoint me,” she said. “You disappoint me greatly. If you have no intention of loving or being loved, then the whole journey is pointless. You might as well leap from this shelf right now and let yourself shatter into a million pieces. Get it over with. Get it all over with now.” “I would leap if I was able,” said Edward. “Shall I push you?” said the old doll. “No, thank you,” Edward said to her.
It is a story about awakening a heart and learning what love is. A closed heart is a closed life. A heart that loves, lives.
The main protagonist is a china rabbit. We follow his adventures as he adapts and changes.
The novel is beautifully illustrated with the most charming pictures.
I did have a favourite story within the lifetime of Edward Tulane. See if you do too.
The whole book is beautiful. I read it alone in just one sitting. I imagine it would be wonderful to read aloud to your children or grandchildren and share Edward Tulane’s journey with them.
This book would make a beautiful addition to any bookshelf.
