The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane
by Kate DiCamillo

Published in 2006. 200 pages.

This children's book - which is also a fabulous quick read for adults - was the "Great Reads for Girls" pick this month. I absolutely loved it, as I did DiCamillo's previous book, The Tale of Despereaux, which we read in the library group a couple years ago. Edward Tulane is a story about learning to love, about loss, and about redemption. Bagram Ibatoulline's illustrations are gorgeous. I highly recommend this book!
