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.
The story is quite nice and Children will enjoy the variety of characters in it. Every child has a favorite toy and they would relate to the story in their own unique way.
There are 27 chapters in the book. Vocabulary is extremely polished and refined. You might need to sit with a dictionary.
