Elliott relates to Opal because he has lots of friends and a dog. His dog's name is Zoey, and he cares for her like Opal cares for Winn - Dixie. Elliott's favorite character in this book is Otis. Our favorite part is when Otis said he went to jail. Not that going to jail was good, but his going to jail surprised us because that was totally not how his personality is. Opal was as surprised as we were that he had gone to jail because he was so shy, but he is still a nice person.
Elliott would recommend this book to people that like dogs, adventure, and sad stories that turn out happy. People will like the parts when Winn - Dixie got lost in the storm and gets found, or when Otis played music to the animals in the pet store. Irish recommends this book to friends and family that like dogs, adventure, and sad stories that have a happy ending. This book is for everyone of all ages.
