Flora and Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures – Kate DiCamillo

Kate DiCamillo is a beloved author in our home so I was excited to share this book with our daughter.  I thought we might read it together.  She had other ideas.  She truly could not put this book down and read and read with joy and audible giggles.

Flora and Ulysses is a zany tale that features a squirrel who can fly and types poetry.  These skills appear after he is rescued from a near death experience with a vacuum cleaner by ten year old Flora.  The duo shares a special bond and a number of exciting adventures.  DiCamillo books always provide terrific character development.  This book also features outstanding vocabulary use and interesting sentence structure.  It is definitely a new favorite!
