Edward Tulane is an expensive toy rabbit made of china. He is vain and self-centered with no interest in anyone other than himself. On an ocean voyage, Edward is accidentally thrown overboard and sinks to the bottom of the sea. So begins his journey – a journey over which he has no control, for he is a toy rabbit. As the years pass, Edward meets many different people in many different situations. Through this miraculous journey, he learns what it is to love, what it is to lose that love and how to find the courage to love again.
