Flora and Ulysses: The Illuminated AdventuresCall to Order
A cynic meets an unlikely superhero in a genre-breaking new novel by a master storyteller.
It begins, as the best superhero stories do, with a tragic accident that has unexpected consequences. The squirrel never saw it coming ? the vacuum cleaner, that is. As for self-described cynic Flora Belle Buckman, she has read every issue of the comic book Terrible Things Can Happen to You! so she is just the right person to step in and save him. What neither can predict is that Ulysses (the squirrel) has been born anew, with powers of strength, flight and misspelled poetry.
This a laugh-out-loud story, by Kate DiCamillo,? filled with eccentric, endearing characters and a rather brilliant?format, in which the text is interspersed with?graphic sequences and full-page illustrations.
