The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane–Kate DiCamillo
Edward Tulane is a china rabbit given to a ten-year-old girl named Abilene  by her grandmother in the s. He enjoys a pleasant but vain life with his young mistress, who treats him with the utmost love and respect, until an unfortunate incident finds him falling overboard while vacationing on the RMS Queen Mary. Edward spends days on the ocean floor, until a storm frees him from the seabed and a passing fisherman and his buddy pull him from their fishing net. The man takes him home to his wife where he is renamed and forced to wear dresses. Edward is passed from hand to hand of a succession of life-altering characters, such as a hobo and his dog and a four-year-old girl with tuberculosis and her brother.
He saw the stars. But for the first time in his life, he looked at them and felt no comfort. Instead, he felt mocked.
