BOOK NAME: The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane
AUTHOR: Kate DiCamillo
Meet Edward Tulane. He is a china rabbit with the fanciest clothes and features you have ever seen on a rabbit. And he is dearly loved and pampered by his owner, Abilene. Unfortunately, Edward’s heart is closed and he thinks of Abilene and her family as dull. However, his life changes dramatically when Edward is lost and is found by another person; in fact, several people. Each person who finds Edward gives him a new name and shares his or her story in which Edward now plays a role. As Edward’s heart is broken and “repaired”, it gets stronger. But it is enough for Edward to learn to love back?
Susanna, Malone, Clyde, and Jangles are just some of the names given to Edward throughout his journey. Each new name and story will either make you feel sympathy or great joy. Since Edward can think but cannot move or speak, his character needs to be tough at times to absorb everything that is taking place around him. My favorite part is when all hope is lost, he still believes somebody will come for him. They say if you love something set it free, if it comes back to you then it is yours. You will definitely find yourself cheering for Edward to end up where he truly belongs.
This book is one of my favorites of all time and with the beautiful illustrations it becomes amazingly vivid. Some people don’t like sob stories, but please just bear through the tears because this is indeed a wonderful adventure!
BOOK NAME: Stone Rabbit series
AUTHOR: Erik Craddock
I’m going to write about three books in the Stone Rabbit series. The first one is called BC Mambo. The second one is Pirate Palooza. The third one is called Deep Space Disco. There’s only five books out, but I’m only going to write about three, because I only have three. I want to get the other ones because those look cool.
These books are action kids’ books. Each is like a comic book, with a lot of words like “poof”, “pow” and that kind of stuff.
BC Mambo is about Stone Rabbit finding a giant hole in his bathroom and falls through it and lands in dinosaur eggs. Stone Rabbit runs into a lot of dinosaurs until he finally gets out of that world.
In Pirate Palooza, Stone Rabbit finds a leg for a table that he broke, but he doesn’t know it’s a pirate’s wooden leg. He has to fight a lot of pirates and he eventually saves the pirates from getting attacked by this other ship.
In Deep Space Disco, he goes into this restaurant and gets sucked into a spaceship, so then he’s an astronaut. He and his friend save the world.
I like these books because there’s a lot of action and they’re funny. I
think these books are good for kids in first and second grade.
