Transcript of Because of Winn Dixie

by: Natalie Santos Because of Winn Dixie Summary Theme I think that the theme of this story is... Characters Opal- a lonely, funny little girl who is really obidient with her father. Winn-Dixie- is wild ,bright, and a good listener ( is a dog) Miss Franny Block- the librarian in the story Otis- a music loving guy that plays the guitar Gloria Dump- is an old woman that can't see very well(friend of Opal.) The Preacher(Opal's father)- an average man who's wife left him (who he still loves) Sweety-Pie Thomas- the little girl who likes to listen to Otis's music Dunlap and Stevie Dewberry- Two brothers who aren't very nice to Opal Friendship I chose this theme because Winn Dixie shows true friendship towards Opal. About the Author... Kate DiCamillo Was born March 25, 1964. Born in Merion, Pennsylvania. When she was 5 years old she moved to Florida because doctors believed it would help her chronic pneumonia. In Florida she read a lot of books. Kate got a bachelor of arts degree in English from the University of Florida. Opal is a lonely girl with a single parent.Well he isn't exactly single ,she just left him. But everything changed when she found Winn-Dixie. Winn-Dixie is a smart and funny dog (who really doesn't like thunder storms.)Opal usually is kind of afraid of her father. But now with Winn-Dixie by her side, she has more confidence in talking to her dad. She decided she has so much confidence, that she asked her dad about her mother... Thank You For watching!! <- this book won a Newbery Honor Award. Awwww. (this is the part were you clap)
