Staff Pick

This book is so good! The story is narrated by lonely, motherless, 10-year-old Opal. It all begins when she adopts a stray dog and names him Winn-Dixie. It's a book full of charmingly flawed characters struggling to come to terms with how in life "the sweet and the sad are all mixed up together and how hard it is to separate them out." Kate DiCamillo could make a grocery list moving. I'm really excited to read her new book!

Ingrid in the Couve, July 21, 2011 (view all comments by Ingrid in the Couve)
I picked this book up to read with my 6 year old daughter before bed each the evening. I did a preliminary read-through to insure the content was appropriate, and found it hard to put down. I didn't come with high expectations as I knew nothing of the author or the storyline (although I was aware it had been made into a movie), but I immediately fell in love with the characters, their voices, and the relationships they wove with each other. I found it honest and touching, and at one particularly moving point, struggled not to tear up during my morning commute on the bus. I have since recommended it to multiple people, and I was enthusiastic to immediately re-read it, as I intended, with my daughter.
