This book really hits the heart. The tale of how a young girl goes from a nobody to known all over town. The end almost brought me to tears. I love how you put so much voice in it. I read this book in my 4th grade class and absolutely loved it.

Winn Dixie, Master Story Telling
I'm a 55 yr. old man and I'm not ashamed to say your,"Because of Winn Dixie" is such a feel good story. I love the way you have captured the real small town Florida life style. A nice and easy pace of people you feel such a closeness to.
It's written with such a peaceful and beautiful soul. I salute you. You are truely blessed.

A one out of a million great books
This novel is a great story and nothing like violence ever happens in it. I recomend it to everyone. It's a great book to read. I think all this because I love it, I love dogs, and I love books. My favorite part is when Opal finds Winn Dixie in the Winn Dixie store and everyone was scared annd the owner was standing on a chair.
