This book is meant to be read aloud, so clearly do you hear the voice of its young protagonist. It feels like she's come into the room with you and is pointing over your shoulder to her favourite memories in the family album. She hails from the 'deep South', her character as fine as "Anne of Green Gables" and "Pollyanna". She's a child who misses her absent mother, while her daddy is taken up with his work as the local preacher. It is up to India Opal to make her own friends in a new town.
There is pathos but also an undeniably humour, some great comic moments provided by her renegade dog, Winn-Dixie. His peculiar smile and fear of thunderstorms bewitch the heart of India Opal. Between them they herd a gaggle of illuminating characters to a very special party, given by Gloria Dump.
It's a little gem of a book, sure to make you smile.
Because of Winn Dixie is mainly about a homeless dog who smiles his heart out.
Winn Dixie is found in a groceries store called Winn Dixie, in Florida. When opal finds out he's in with a chance of going to the pound, she steps in...
But this is no ordinary dog , Winn Dixie some how manages to help the lonely opal find some friends. By the end of the story the Bald Headed Babies, The preacher, the librarian and others are all drawn together because of Winn Dixie.
But one stormy night something happens which could change Opals life forever and Winn Dixie's secret is revealed...
I have read this book a thousand times and have had it read to me two thousand times by my Mummy.
Verdict:I love it so much that I even got her to take me to the Winn Dixie store on our holiday to Florida and have my photo taken outside it!
This book is very nice and I really enjoyed reading it.
I hope you have fun reading too.
Well, shame on me. This book has a sneaky, understated charm that just grows on you. It's purely a mood thing - looking back you can't believe you fell for it - but it really does work. There's no particular thing that stands out; there is no brilliant, quotable passage. There's just this affirming effect. And isn't that a nice thing to introduce a young reader to?
