My favorite part is when Opal goes to the grocery store and finds a dog who is making a big mess in the store. The manager and all the people were screaming. Opal claimed the dog and brought him home. He is an interesting dog. He is able to make Opal feel good about being in a new town without any friends. I felt sad when I read the book because Opal doesn't know anyone and has to live in a trailer park with only adults. I love playing and visiting my friends. I can't imagine how Opal feels. This dog is special because he helps Opal to make friends.
I recommend this to someone without friends. It will make that person have a better life by teaching them how to make friends. I think 2nd-4th graders would like to read books like this. Kids who love dog stories will find taht Winn Dixie is a perfect dog story.
