Because of Winn-Dixie, a big, ugly, happy dog, 10-year-old Opal learns 10 things about her long-gone mother from her preacher father. Because of Winn-Dixie, Opal makes new friends among the somewhat unusual residents of her new hometown, Naomi, Florida. Because of Winn-Dixie, Opal begins to find her place in the world and let go of some of the sadness left by her mother's abandonment seven years earlier.
With her newly adopted, goofy pooch at her side, Opal explores her bittersweet world and learns to listen to other people's lives. This warm and winning book hosts an unforgettable cast of characters, including a librarian who fought off a bear with a copy of War and Peace, an ex-con pet-store clerk who plays sweet music to his animal charges, and the neighborhood "witch," a nearly blind woman who sees with her heart. Part Frankie (The Member of the Wedding), part Scout (To Kill a Mockingbird), Opal brings her own unique and wonderful voice to a story of friendship, loneliness, and acceptance. Opal's down-home charm and dead-on honesty will earn her friends and fans far beyond the confines of Naomi, Florida.

It is easy to see why this otherworldly visitor would be charmed by “Edward Tulane.” DiCamillo’s appealing tale tells the life story of a haughty, vain and prideful china rabbit – the eponymous Edward. Edward’s story begins in the 1930’s when he is given as a birthday present to Abilene; an adoring ten year old girl who loves Edward unconditionally. The china rabbit’s arrogant disposition however prevents him from appreciating this care and affection. Edward’s life soon changes when he is lost on a family trip. From then on, he is acquired and lost by a variety of owners, some of whom treat him with kindness and some who are cruelly inconsiderate. As Edward travels with the fishermen and hoboes he encounters, he slowly loses his pride, coming to realize that “if you have no intention of loving or being loved, then the whole journey is pointless.” “The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane” is tinged with a melancholic magic and its seemingly whimsical nature hides deep reserves of sadness. It’s a story for children (and aliens) of all ages.
