Opinion

From Library Staff

Ten-year-old India Opal Buloni describes her first summer in the town of Naomi, Florida, and all the good things that happen to her because of her big ugly dog Winn-Dixie.

The characters in this book are so real and vivid, you will have a hard time believing that they are just fiction. Not your typical dog story.

Opal’s life changes for the better when she adopts an ugly dog outside the grocery store.

Loved this story from start to finish. It's a feel-good heart warmer of a special animal -- a smiling dog with a good sense of humor -- facilitating friendship, good morale and a healthier life for all.

As an animal lover -- I love these stories which show how much a non-speaking being can powerfully affect a human being and give reason to keep on keeping on.

It was a great book. I was captivated by it from the first paragraph.

I love this book it's my favorite and I place a hold on it and when it's ready I get to read it i now the characters it's opal and winne Dixie sweetie pie Thomas Gloria dump Amanda the librarian and more I learned from my teacher ms pasquits

I love this book so much. I want to read it again. But I dint have time for that. Now I want to watch the movie. I cant waitto see the movie. This book didn't really relate to but it was a good book. Maybe because I been living in the same house for 7years now.

My students (and myself) LOVE this book! It is a heartwarming story about a girl, a dog and her family. I reccommend it to everyone.
