Children Ages 8+ • 2 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Newbery Award winner Kate DiCamillo constructs an old-fashioned story about a vain and selfish china rabbit who learns the value (and price) of love. Edward's journey is difficult--and even horrifying, as when he sinks to the ocean floor--but Judith Ivey's steady and compassionate narration makes one confident that everything will turn out all right in the end. And Ivey's skillful accent changes, from a New England fisherman and his wife to a Southern hobo and his dog, help communicate Edward's physical travels across the country better even than the text does. However, listeners may want to seek out the print book to see Bagram Ibatoulline's evocative illustrations, which are not included with the audio packaging.
