An Interview with Alina Sayre
For my sixteenth Dream Gardens podcast, I interviewed author Alina Sayre about one of her favorite books (and one of mine), the children’s middle grade fantasy novel The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo.
The book tells the story Edward Tulane, a particularly self-centered, vain and selfish china rabbit whose whole world is turned, literally, topsy-turvy, when he is accidentally tossed overboard and sinks to the bottom of the ocean. Separated for the first time from Adelaide, the little girl who adores him, Edward is eventually rescued, but that is only the start of a terribly long journey to find his way back home. It is a journey that is sometimes frightening, sometime joyous, and sometimes just plain heart-breaking, which comes as quite a surprise to a china rabbit who did not know he had a heart to break.
Alina Sayre is the author of the middle grade fantasy series Voyages of the Legend, which includes the books The Illuminators Gift, The Illuminators Test, and most recently, The Illuminator Rising. You can find her website at alinasayre.com.
