About The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo​:

Abilene loves her blue china rabbit, Edward Tulane, but Edward is extremely vain and only loves himself. On a voyage from New York to London, Edward falls overboard and from there finds himself on an amazing journey. He travels with tramps, works as a scarecrow, comforts a dying child...and finally learns what it is to truly love.
