Because of Winn-Dixie


I wouldn’t be honest to the Bookwagon maxim of only selecting books we have read and loved, if ‘Because of Winn-Dixie‘ was not included in our range. I adore this book. I was not aware of the Winn-Dixie supermarkets before reading it. During a Florida road trip, I waved to every one, hoping for a glimpse of a large, lolloping dog.

Opal Buloni, little realises the difference to her life that the stray dog she rescues from her local Winn-Dixie supermarket will make. He affects those in her new parish town, too, from her grieving preacher father, to a host of other ill-sorted, lonely characters. This wacky, weighty, warm and deservedly Newbery award winning story is a prize. Whether aloud on a French summer staircase with two little boys, or curled up alone on the sofa, I urge you to read ‘Because of Winn-Dixie‘. This is a Bookwagon necessity.
