Publisher Comments:

The best-selling Newbery Honor Book in a beautiful slip-cased edition sure to be shared with generations to come.

It's not often that an author's first novel becomes a runaway NEW YORK TIMES bestseller, a Newbery Honor winner, and a beloved classic that touches the hearts of readers of all ages. Recalling the fiction of Harper Lee and Carson McCullers, Kate DiCamillo's debut novel, like Winn-Dixie himself, is unquestionably a keeper. Now Candlewick Press is proud to present BECAUSE OF WINN-DIXIE in a gorgeous keepsake edition, complete with bookplate, that does justice to this most treasured of tales. The book's dark-orange clothbound cover features a new illustration of Winn-Dixie — in his most endearing pose — tipped in with a frame of copper metallic stamping that is echoed on the book's spine. It's encased in a kraft-paper box, printed with copper metallic type, that incorporates familiar images from the original cover.

Synopsis:

The highly acclaimed Newbery Honor book--now the subject of an upcoming feature film from 20th Century Fox starring Jeff Daniels and Cicely Tyson--is available in this beautiful edition, with copper metallic stamping on the spine and a kraft-paper slipcase.

About the Author

Kate DiCamillo says of writing BECAUSE OF WINN-DIXIE, "I was living in an apartment where no dogs were allowed. As a result, I was suffering from a serious case of 'dog withdrawal.' One night, before I went to sleep, I heard this little girl's voice (with a Southern accent) say, 'I have a dog named Winn-Dixie.' When I woke up the next morning, the voice was still talking, and I started writing down what India Opal Buloni was telling me. The book is (I hope) a hymn of praise to dogs, friendship, and the South."

This book was very heartwarming. I related to so many of the same things that Opal was going through. I enjoyed following the storyline, and I enjoyed all of the characters that were introduced throughout the story. I thought that it would have a different ending than what it did; however, I still wasn't disappointed! This was a great read!
