First edition. When a china rabbit named Edward Tulane, with a very high opinion of himself, is separated from his owner, he finds his world turned upside down. Embarking on an extraordinary journey, he travels from the depths of the ocean to the net of a fisherman, from the top of a garbage heap to the fireside of a hoboes' camp, from the bedside of an ailing child to the bustling streets of Memphis. And along the way, we are shown a true miracle — that even the most self-absorbed hearts can learn to love, to lose, and to love again.
