To an adult reader the storyline of Edward
Tulane is fairly predictable but the writing is anything
but. DiCamillo's art is to play our heart strings like a maestro
using the vocabulary of a third-grader.
If you can find an excuse to buy this for a child of your acquaintance I suggest you do so soon - but before you give it away, take a few moments to enjoy the story yourself - and when you do gift it you might want to write a dedication to the lucky recipient because, whereas most children's books get passed on when the child grows out of them, this book is a keeper.
Blood at the Root
