Publisher's Summary

The classic heartwarming tale from Kate DiCamillo - now with an afterword from the beloved author, reflecting on 20 years in print

One summer's day, 10-year-old India Opal Buloni goes down to the local supermarket for some groceries - and comes home with a dog. But Winn-Dixie is no ordinary dog. It's because of Winn-Dixie that Opal begins to make friends. And it's because of Winn-Dixie that she finally dares to ask her father about her mother, who left when Opal was three. In fact, as Opal admits, just about everything that happens that summer is because of Winn-Dixie. 

This updated edition of Kate DiCamillo's classic novel invites listeners to make themselves at home - whether they're experiencing the book for the first time or returning to an old favorite.

Loved Windixie

This is an overall great book for anyone. My children read this for their third grade class and I felt it was a great book for their personal library. I bought the kindle version as well as this Audible version.

Wonderful story

My 9 year old granddaughter is reading this for school. I bought it for us to listen too in the car. Great story, wonderful narrators. They added depth to characters and made it a compelling listen. I like it enough to listen several times on my own. The forward and post notes are on point. Highly recommend. Would be good for any kid struggling to belong.

Winn Dixie is heart warming

I enjoyed this 2nd publication I'm glad her library book is changed too!
It presents every child problem with a brave approach to overcome each of them.

Beautiful story and narration

I am a 40 year old middle school ELA teacher, and I can't believe I've never read this book! This was, hands down, the best narration I have ever heard. I would recommend this audiobook to anyone!

Very very good!

My kids ages 5 and 14 loved this book! It was extremely captivating to listen to! And the chapters are short so you can stop and start without needing to stop midway. I also love the changes the author made in the name of social equity.
