In her instant 1 New York Times bestseller The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane, a haughty china rabbit undergoes a profound transformation after finding himself facedown on the ocean floor—lost, and waiting to be found. The Tale of Despereaux —the Newbery Medal—winning novel that later inspired an animated adventure from Universal Pictures—stars a tiny mouse with exceptionally large ears who is driven by love to become an unlikely hero.
And The Magician's Elephant, an acclaimed and exquisitely paced fable, dares to ask the question, What if? Kate DiCamillo's own journey is something of a dream come true. After moving to Minnesota from Florida in her twenties, homesickness and a bitter winter helped inspire Because of Winn-Dixie —her first published novel, which, remarkably, became a runaway bestseller and snapped up a Newbery Honor.
And very, very happy. Since then, the master storyteller has written for a wide range of ages. She is the author of six books in the Mercy Watson series of early chapter books, which stars a "porcine wonder" with an obsession for buttered toast. She is also the co-author of the Bink and Gollie series, which celebrates the tall and short of a marvelous friendship. She also wrote a luminous holiday picture book, Great Joy. The Illuminated Adventures won the Newbery Medal. It was released in fall to great acclaim, including five starred reviews, and was an instant New York Times bestseller.
Together, we see the world. Together, we see one another. August 17, In DiCamillo's fifth novel, a clairvoyant tells year-old Peter, an orphan living with a brain-addled ex-soldier, that an elephant will lead him to his sister, who the ex-soldier claims died at birth. The fortuneteller's prediction seems cruelly preposterous as there are no pachyderms anywhere near Baltese, a vaguely eastern European city enduring a bitter winter. Peter learns that both magician and beast have been jailed, and upon first glimpse of the imprisoned elephant, Peter realizes that his fate and the elephant's are linked.
The mannered prose and Tanaka's delicate, darkly hued paintings give the story a somber and old-fashioned feel. Ages 8— More titles may be available to you.
