Kate DiCamillo: How she became a bestseller after 473 rejection letters

Katrina Elizabeth DiCamillo born March 25, [1] is an American writer of children's fiction for all reading levels, usually featuring animals. Her best-known books for young children are the Mercy Watson series , illustrated by Chris Van Dusen. DiCamillo was the U. National Ambassador for Young People's Literature , appointed by the Library of Congress for the term comprising and In Winn-Dixie was ranked number 30 among all-time children's novels in a survey published by School Library Journal , a monthly with primarily U. Despereaux 51 and Edward Tulane 59 also made the Top list.

As the US National Ambassador for Young People's Literature, Kate DiCamillo spent a lot of time visiting schools and talking to children about the power of stories and her decade-long journey to crack it as a writer. She had come prepared with a power point presentation and would invariably stop on one slide which showed a picture of herself, her mother and older brother. DiCamillo's 20 children's books range across genres and age groups, from picture books to chapter books, rattling with themes of loss, parental desertion or absence and ultimately hope. Raymie Nightingale , her latest, is the story of an anxious girl who dreams of becoming a beauty queen in the vain hope of luring her father from the clutches of the dental hygienist with whom he has run off. It is a feat of imagination, but it is also the "absolutely true story of my heart", DiCamillo says.

It's a combination of the excellent writing by the author, a story both poignant and humorous and a main character, year-old Opal Buloni, who, along with her dog Winn-Dixie, will win readers' hearts. The story centers on Opal and the summer she moves with her father to Naples, Florida. With the help of Winn-Dixie, Opal conquers loneliness, makes unusual friends and even convinces her father to tell her 10 things about her mother who abandoned the family seven years ago.
