This book is hands down the best book I've read in both my adult life and childhood. The main character is a toy, a rabbit made of China, who is living the life of luxury until one fateful day when he met his untimely misfortune. Edward, as he is known, undergoes several name changes and personas as he travels through life with the incredible people that encounter him. My favorite family he ends up with is that of a brother and sister, Bryce and Sarah. These siblings demonstrate the purest kind of love, generosity, and compassion. DiCamillo certainly outdid herself in this fantastical story about love, loss, humility, and a touch of suspense. I would recommend this to any reader, young or old! This book is a great read-aloud and could also serve as a character education book on how to treat others.
