Do you want to go on an an adventure with a dog and a girl? Well, if you do, go on the adventures with Opal and Winn-Dixie. You will find that they meet lots of friends, like Otis, Miss Franny, Gloria Dump, and the Dewberry boys. If you want to meet the rest of them, read this book, and read about all of their adventures.

I'm Christopher. My favorite part of Because of Winn-Dixie was was when Otis brought pickles to the party. This was my favorite part because it was sort of like he was breaking out of his shell by going to the party. The character in this book that was my favorite was Winn-Dixie because he ate peanut butter, and I like peanut butter. The character that I made a connection with in Because of Winn-Dixie was Opal. The reason I made a connection to her was because my dog ran away, too. Luckily my dog came back.

I recommend this book to my mom because she loves dogs and books.
