Because of Winn-Dixie
by Kate DiCamillo
This is my favorite animal story. Opal has just moved to Naomi, Florida with her father, a priest, and tells of her first summer there. She finds a stray dog at the Winn-Dixie supermarket and the workers threaten to call the pound. Opal doesn’t want that to happen, so she adopts him. Many good things happen until Winn-Dixie runs away during a thunder and lightning storm. Will Opal ever find him again? –Teresa F. (age 12) Rating
