Kate DiCamillo won a Newberry Medal for The Tale of Despereaux and a Newberry Honor Award for Because of Winn-Dixie. The idea for this book came from a gift and a dream. One Christmas the author received a ceramic rabbit; the next night she dreamed he was laying face down on the ocean floor.
Edward Tulane is a very elegant, ceramic rabbit who belongs to Abilene, a young girl who adores and cares for Edward. When her family moves to America, Edward is lost in the ocean. This delightful, and sometimes sad, book is about Edward's journey and what he learns along the way.
