Author Info
Kate Dicamillo
Children's book author Kate DiCamillo worked for a book distributor before convincing a Candlewick sales representative to show an editor a draft of BECAUSE OF WINN-DIXIE. She went on to receive a 2001 Newbery Honor, and the book was made into a film in 2005. DiCamillo has been continuously and impressively successful, winning the 2004 Newbery Medal for THE TALE OF DESPEREAUX, and writing numerous well-received books, including THE MIRACULOUS JOURNEY OF EDWARD TULANE and the delightful Mercy Watson early reading series.
Praise
"There will be inevitable comparisons of Edward Tulane to THE VELVETEEN RABBIT, and Margery Williams's classic story can still charm after 83 years. But as delightful as it is, it can't match the exquisite language, inventive plot twists and memorable characters of DiCamillo's tale...Ibatoulline's illustrations are simply wonderful...."
"Somewhere between fairy tale and fable, DiCamillo spins the tale of Edward, transformed by the lives he touches. The reader will be transformed too. Sumptuous gouache illustrations complement the old-fashioned, dramatic narrative."
"This achingly beautiful story shows a true master of writing at her very best...The tender look as the changes from arrogance to grateful loving is perfectly delineated...An ever-so-marvelous tale."
"DiCamillo's latest novel...may well be her best...[S]he is a refreshingly graceful storyteller with a finely tuned ear for the discerning detail...However, one reading is hardly enough to savor the rich philosophical nuances of DiCamillo's story. I think I will go read it again right now."
From the Publisher
Annotation Edward, a finely turned-out, silk-suited rabbit made of china, with luxurious rabbit-fur ears, is quite self-interested until he experiences the adventure of his life. Beloved and cared for by Abilene, a girl whose grandmother is the only other person who appreciates him, Edward leads a comfortable, sheltered life. But when he goes astray, Edward learns that there is more to life than his own reflection and a warm bed. With sumptuous, full-color illustrations. Kate DiCamillo's THE TALE OF DESPEREAUX won the 2004 Newbery Medal. A 2006 Publishers Weekly Book of the Year. A 2006 New York Times Notable Book.
Editors Note Once, in a house on Egypt Street, there lived a china rabbit named Edward Tulane. The rabbit was very pleased with himself, and for good reason: he was owned by a girl named Abilene, who adored him completely. And then, one day, he was lost. . . . Kate DiCamillo takes us on an extraordinary journey, from the depths of the ocean to the net of a fisherman, from the bedside of an ailing child to the bustling streets of Memphis. Along the way, we are shown a miracle -- that even a heart of the most breakable kind can learn to love, to lose, and to love again.
