Description
(First Edition, Signed Bookplate) (2013 Newbery Medal Winner) A young cynic meets an unlikely superhero in this illustrated novel for readers 8 to 11 by the Newbery Medal–winning author of The Tale of Despereaux and the Mercy Watson series. It begins, as the best superhero stories do, with a tragic accident that has unexpected consequences, as self-described cynic Flora Belle Buckman (who has read every issue of the comic book Terrible Things Can Happen to You) pulls a bedraggled squirrel out of a runaway yard vacuum and gives him mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Not only does this squirrel, soon to be dubbed Ulysses, come back to life, he acquires super strength, the comprehension of speech, a knack for mistyped poetry, and the ability to fly—if not his missing fur. Kate DiCamillo's laugh-out-loud story is interspersed with comic book pages starring Ulysses, rendered in K.G. Campbell's pencil drawings. We are pleased to offer Flora & Ulysses in a first edition with a bookplate signed by DiCamillo.

"Eccentric characters, snappy prose and the fantastical plot give this delightful novel a giddy, over-the-top patina, but the core is big and hopeful, contemplative and bursting with heart. No small feat, even for a superhero like DiCamillo."—Shelf Awareness
