Flora & Ulysses

by Kate DiCamillo, iIlustrated By K. G. Campbell
£6.99   paperback  Walker Books Ltd (2014)

Flora & Ulysses by Kate DiCamillo, iIlustrated By K. G. Campbell Holy unanticipated occurrences! 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. And Flora will be changed too as she discovers the possibility of hope and the promise of a capacious heart.
 
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Kate DiCamillo comes a laugh-out-loud story filled with eccentric, endearing characters and featuring an exciting new format a novel interspersed with comic-style graphic sequences, plus full-page illustrations, all rendered in black-and-white by a talented new artist.
