It's the story about the china rabbit who goes through the way to the 'true love'
I bought this book because of its inexpensive price as well as 1plus1 including a Korean version and an English version. and one more word "It was on the Korean soap opera which has been popular in many asian countries."
Personally I prefer to read the one written in English thanks to fabulous illustrations and an easy context to understand. I think there is nothing more touching than the original edition. Although I have read the Korean one after finishing the one in English, the touch from the original ver. is still in my mind.
Through a variety of harsh experience, Mr. Tulane, a china rabbit, has been being hurt and broken. Also, he comes to realize he is loving someone, but sad endings he faces make him refuse to accept the LOVE.
However, the hurt and suffering seem to give him bigger love and happiness.
"Open your heart," she said gently. "Someone will come. Someone will come for you. But first you must open your heart."
The door closed. The sunlight disappeared.
Someone will come.
Edward's heart stirred. He thought, for the first time in a long time, of the house on Egypt Street and of Abilene winding his watch and then bending toward him and placing it on his left leg, saying : I will come home to you.
No, no, he told himself. Don't believe it. Don't let yourself believe it.
But it was too late.
Someone will comm for you.
The china rabbit's heart had begun, again, to open.
