Edward Tulane ist ein eingebildeter Porzellanhase und das Lieblingsspielzeug von Abilene, die ihn von Herzen liebt. Das bequeme Leben ist für Edward eine Selbstverständlichkeit, bis er auf einer Schiffsreise über Bord geht und eine endlose Odyssee von einem Besitzer zum nächsten beginnt. Ab 8.
A classic tale by Newbery Medalist Kate DiCamillo, America’s beloved storyteller. 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. Featuring illustrations and a refreshed cover by Bagram Ibatoulline, as well as an excerpt of Kate DiCamillo's newest novel, Raymie Nightingale.
