It was so cute, it was rather annoying. People do not get all nice to you just because you have a dog by your side. Still, it was a nice kids story, but not something you could read more then once with being annoyed by how unrealistic everything was.

This book is meant for the younger reader... I read it in second grade. But it was great. It's easy to read and the message is nice.

This was a great book! One of the best books I have read in a long time. I am the one who wrote the review about " The Tiger Rising" you shoud read this book if you like dogs. Kate DiCamillo is one of my favorite authors, also. She is from Minnestoa.

I thought that this book was a really good book because it had lots of different catagories of books in it. It had catagories from adventurous and freaky-like books! My favorite part of the book was when Winn-Dixie tried to catch a mouse in church. It is an inspiring book for any ages and it if it wasn't a newberry award book, it should be!

It was a touching and enchanting story. When Despereaux is unwanted by his family he runs off and becomes friends with Princess Pea. Those two, along with Miggery Sow, Roscuro, and a pile of other characters, take an adventure you'll never forget.

What I like most about this book is the dog named WinnDixies character. For example, his friendly smile and how he can't bear to be left alone.
