“Every time a new person comes into our lives, we start off on a new adventure…you must keep your heart open, ready to love and to be loved.”

With his handmade silk suits, a wide array of hats and tiny gold pocket watch, Edward Tulane is the most exceptional toy in Abilene’s room. He is adored and he is happy. But when Edward is thrown overboard on a cruise ship by mean boys, he begins a remarkable journey of discovery across Depression-era America. Based on Newberry-winner Kate DiCamillo’s celebrated book and brought to life through imaginative storytelling and folk music, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane is a breathtaking story of finding friendship, finding yourself, and eventually finding your way home.
