Synopsis: The best-selling Newbery Honor Book in a beautiful slip-cased edition sure to be shared with generations to come.

It's not often that an author's first novel becomes a runaway NEW YORK TIMES bestseller, a Newbery Honor winner, and a beloved classic that touches the hearts of readers of all ages. Recalling the fiction of Harper Lee and Carson McCullers, Kate DiCamillo's debut novel, like Winn-Dixie himself, is unquestionably a keeper. Now Candlewick Press is proud to present BECAUSE OF WINN-DIXIE in a gorgeous keepsake edition, complete with bookplate, that does justice to this most treasured of tales. The book's dark-orange clothbound cover features a new illustration of Winn-Dixie ? in his most endearing pose ? tipped in with a frame of copper metallic stamping that is echoed on the book's spine. It's encased in a kraft-paper box, printed with copper metallic type, that incorporates familiar images from the original cover.

Review: Because of Winn-Dixie, a big, ugly, happy dog, 10-year-old Opal learns 10 things about her long-gone mother from her preacher father. Because of Winn-Dixie, Opal makes new friends among the somewhat unusual residents of her new hometown, Naomi, Florida. Because of Winn-Dixie, Opal begins to find her place in the world and let go of some of the sadness left by her mother's abandonment seven years earlier.

With her newly adopted, goofy pooch at her side, Opal explores her bittersweet world and learns to listen to other people's lives. This warm and winning book hosts an unforgettable cast of characters, including a librarian who fought off a bear with a copy of War and Peace, an ex-con pet-store clerk who plays sweet music to his animal charges, and the neighborhood "witch," a nearly blind woman who sees with her heart. Part Frankie (The Member of the Wedding), part Scout (To Kill a Mockingbird), Opal brings her own unique and wonderful voice to a story of friendship, loneliness, and acceptance. Opal's down-home charm and dead-on honesty will earn her friends and fans far beyond the confines of Naomi, Florida. (Ages 9 and older) --Emilie Coulter
