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 adored him completely. And then, one day, he was lost. . . . Kate DiCamillo takes us on an extraordinary journey, from the depths of the ocean to the net of a fisherman, from the bedside of an ailing child to the bustling streets of Memphis. Along the way, we are shown a miracle -- that even a heart of the most breakable kind can learn to love, to lose, and to love again.

The University of Florida professors immediately drew attention to the girl who does not go into her pocket for a word. Even then, she began to dream of becoming a writer. And for 9 years after graduating from college, Kate did just that: she dreamed. At this time, she wandered from one occupation to another, changed several different jobs - planting flowers in a greenhouse, selling circus tickets, etc. - and kept thinking about my intended writing career. In short, Kate did everything except the writing itself. And at the age of 29, an epiphany came. After all, so, only in dreams, most of my life could pass. Kate thought very seriously about what to do next. There was only one option: to start writing. And so, living in Minnesota, far from the warm Florida, suffering from a disease that Kate herself called "the absence of a dog" (in the apartment where Kate lived, keeping a dog was prohibited), she began to write a story about the south, about friendship, about a girl and her dog. Thus was born "Thank you, Winn-Dixie!", And then other fairy tales that do not leave indifferent neither large nor small readers and are great for family reading. In addition, some of Kate`s works have already been filmed: in 2005, the film "Thanks to Wynn Dixie" was released, and in 2008 - "The Adventures of Despereaux". Keith about herself: “Today I make a living as a writer. The first thing I do every morning when I wake up is say a little prayer of thanks. Then I sit down at the table and start working. I`m still not sure of myself, I`m afraid I`ll get rejected, but I`m doing my job. I force myself to tell a story that wants to be told. " And a little more: “I write for children and adults, and I like to think of myself as a storyteller. Here are some more facts about me: I am small and I am loud. I really do not like to cook and I really like to eat. I am not married, I have no children, but I have many friends, three lovely nephews and one not so lovely dog. I think of myself as a lucky person, because I can tell life-affirming stories.
