The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane illustration will appear here.
The themes in this book are tragedy with happiness, love, loss, and longing. The lesson is to open your heart and to listen. My favorite part is when Edward gets thrown off the Queen Mary. I like this part because it is tragic and frightening at the same time. The character Edward Tulane reminds me of my cousin because at the beginning Edward is spoiled and so is she. My favorite character is the old baby doll because she is wise and taught Edward to open his heart. Edward’s character changed because at the beginning Edward was spoiled, but throughout the book he realizes what he really has.
I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys adventure books I think that this book is better for third, fourth, and fifth graders than first and second graders because it could make them cry. I hope you like this book as much as I did.
