*Flora and Ulysses – the Illuminated Adventures

Flora & Ulyssesthe Illuminated Adventures by Kate DiCamillo


Flora’s love of comic-book heroes becomes a reality when she saves a squirrel from a powerful vacuum cleaner and it gains unimaginable powers. Saving Ulysses gives Flora the impetus she needs to accept her parent’s recent divorce.

Kate DiCamillo is a fabulous spinner of tales and Flora & Ulysses is just another example of her imaginative talent. I recommend this book to readers of all ages.

* Winner of the Newberry Award in 2014.
