Because of Winn-Dixie Anniversary Edition

By Kate DiCamillo

Revisit Kate DiCamillo’s beloved first novel with a beautiful twentieth-anniversary edition featuring an introduction by Ann Patchett.

“This book is (I hope) a hymn of praise to dogs, friendship, and the South,” Kate DiCamillo said of her best-selling debut novel, which has been awarded a Newbery Honor, translated into nearly thirty languages, and turned into a major motion picture. The story of a preacher’s daughter named Opal whose life is transformed by a scruffy dog named Winn-Dixie continues to touch the hearts of readers of all ages. Celebrate twenty years of Because of Winn-Dixie with a signature anniversary edition featuring a redesigned cover, an introduction by PEN/Faulkner Award–winning author Ann Patchett, and an afterword by Kate DiCamillo.

  • Features a glowing introduction written by best-selling PEN/Faulkner Award-winning author Ann Patchett
  • A beautiful hardcover edition of the beloved classic, featuring the original cover artwork by Chris Sheban, a larger trim size, foil stamping, and deckled edges
  • Includes an afterword written by Kate DiCamillo, reflecting on the years since Because of Winn-Dixie was first published
