Children's book author Kate DiCamillo worked for a book distributor before convincing a Candlewick sales representative to show an editor a draft of BECAUSE OF WINN-DIXIE. She went on to receive a 2001 Newbery Honor, and the book was made into a film in 2005. DiCamillo has been continuously and impressively successful, winning the 2004 Newbery Medal for THE TALE OF DESPEREAUX, and writing numerous well-received books, including THE MIRACULOUS JOURNEY OF EDWARD TULANE and the delightful Mercy Watson early reading series.
