Winner Blurb: 

When a stray dog appears almost magically in the midst of the produce section of the Winn-Dixie grocery store, he leads ten-year-old India Opal Buloni from one new friend to the next in a small Florida town. The stories she gathers from each new friend help her to piece together a new definition of family.

"This humorous and touching first novel is as flavorful as the lozenges once made in town by Littmus W. Block, that taste sweet and sad at the same time," said Parr.
