Rabbits! Aren’t they absolutely adorable? Fluffy, soft and so cute. I am sure you would like to keep one as a pet, just like Abilene, a lovely girl who owned a china rabbit named Edward Tulane.

The rabbit was very glad as he was treated with utmost care and concern and was loved dearly. But one day Edward unfortunately falls overboard a ship and is lost. He then passes from hand to hand and his life-altering journey begins. Read the book to find out what happens to him and where does he finally land.
