Flora And Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures

April 7, 2018 admin 0

“Flora and Ulysses” is a wonderful book that is recommended by Disaya.  It’s fun-filled and exciting with lots of twists and turns!  You will not be disappointed when you get the chance to read this book! “Flora and Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures” It begins, as the best superhero stories do, with a tragic accident that has unexpected consequences. The squirrel never saw the vacuum cleaner coming, but self-described cynic Flora Belle Buckman, who has read every issue of the comic book Terrible Things Can Happen to You!, 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 that Flora will be changed too, as she discovers the possibility of hope and the promise of a capacious heart. From #1 New York Times best-selling 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 and full-page illustrations, all rendered in black-and-white by up-and-coming artist K. G. Campbell. Author: Kate DiCamillo To learn more about this book, click here: “Flora and Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures”
