When ten-year-old India Opal Buloni moves to Naomi, Florida, with her father, she doesn't know what to expect—least of all, that she'll adopt Winn-Dixie, a dog she names after the supermarket where they meet. Before long, Opal and her father realize—with a little help from Winn-Dixie—that while they've both tasted a bit of melancholy in their lives, they still have a whole lot to be thankful for.

When ten year old India Opal moves to a new home she least expects to make any friends. However it is apparent that she does make friends lots of them too, after she finds a stray dog and names him Winn-dixie after she the supermarket where they met. And after that she is very grateful to have met Winn-dixie (who did I mention actually has a the talent of smiling). She and her father the preacher have both tasted a bit of melancholy in their lives, they both still have a lot to be thankful for because of Winn-dixie.
