By: Kate DiCamillo


  • The summer India Opal Buloniand her father, the preacher, moved to Naomi, Florida, Opal meets a new friend. Not just any friend, but family. She comes out of the supermarket with a dog, a big, wet, suffering dog. Opal names the dog Winn-Dixie, after the supermarket were she finds him. Because of him, Opals father tells 10 stories about Opals mom who passed away. Together they meet the local librarian, Miss FrannyBlock, Otis, and Gloria Dump. That summer, Opal realizes to forget and forgive. With a little help from Winn-Dixie, Opal will learn that what she has found, can change her life forever.


  • I think this book was a very good book because the author put in a lot of descriptive words and made me want to keep reading. I think it was a very interesting story and had a lot of emotion. I also like how at the end of each chapter, the author left you wondering what will happen next. These are some reasons why I think this was a very good book.
