Kate DiCamillo’s beloved, best-selling debut novel is now available in a paperback digest edition.
Kate DiCamillo’s fi rst published novel, like Winn-Dixie himself, immediately
proved to be a keeper — a New York Times bestseller, a Newbery Honor winner, the inspiration for a popular film, and most especially, a cherished classic that touches the hearts of readers of all ages. It’s now available in a paperback digest format certain to bring this tale’s magic to an even wider circle of fans.
Abandoned by her mother when she was just three years old, 10-year-old India Opal has been raised primarily by her father, a Baptist preacher. When he relocates the family to a small Florida town, Opal has trouble adjusting, until the day her father sends her to the store to pick up a few necessities--and she comes back with a dog. Inspired by her large, friendly new pet, whom she names Winn-Dixie (after the store), Opal finds the means to reach out and make friends with some of her neighbors--many of whom feel as lost and lonely as Opal herself. Color illustrations accompany the text. BECAUSE OF WINN-DIXIE was named a 2001 Newbery Honor Book, a year 2000 New York Times Children's Notable Book, and one of the Best Children's Books 2000 by Publishers Weekly.
