Kate DiCamillo


USA flag (b.1964)

Kate DiCamillo spent most of her childhood in the South, and moved to Minnesota when she was in her twenties. She was inspired to write Because of Winn-Dixie, her first novel, during a bout of homesickness one brutally cold winter. The book was an immediate success: it is a Newbery Honor Book, has won more than twenty-five state awards, and has been made into a popular family film. Kate DiCamillo’s subsequent books include the Newbery Medal-winning The Tales of Desperaux, The Tiger Rising, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane, and The Magician’s Elephant. She lives in Minneapolis.
