Edward Tulane is a china rabbit. He is special. He is distinguished, dignified, charming, and very, very important. Edward does not see himself as simply a “doll”, and in fact, the term is insulting and degrading to him. Edward is a specimen of great value, and he knows it. The problem is, Edward only loves himself. He finds young Abilene’s love for him almost annoying until one day, Edward becomes lost, and his whole world turns upside down. The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane is a wonderful story about love, loss, change, and finally finding your way home. Students and audiences will fall in love with Edward, and his miraculous journey.”
