“Life, for a very long time, was sweet.And then Lawrence and Nellie’s daughter came for a visit.” 

What do you think will happen to Edward now that Lawrence and Nellie’s daughter has come to visit?

Keep in mind that their daughter is a grown woman, NOT a child.

Why does Pellegrina tell the story about a princess who loves no one and is turned into a warthog by a witch to Abilene and Edward?

What does this story have to do with Edward?

“Once, in a house on Egypt Street, there lived a China rabbit named Edward Tulane.  The rabbit was very pleased with himself, and for good reason: he was owned by a girl named Abilene, who treated him with the utmost care and adored him completely.

And then, one day, he was lost.”

After reading the above blurb to the book, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane, what do you predict this book will be about?   

What kind of journeys do you think Edward will go on while he is lost?
