" I recently read DiCamillo's Miraculous Adventures of Edward Tulane and loved it. I was not quite as captivated by The Magician's Elephant, but it is still an enjoyable, beautiful fable. A bit dark at times for kids, but then most tend to like dark stories, I think. The characters are quirky and interesting and, at times, quite humorous. It's nice to read a children's story that does not feel dumbed-down or contrived. I look forward to more stories by this author. "
