Publisher's Summary

Holy unanticipated occurrences! A cynic meets an unlikely superhero in a genre-breaking new novel by master storyteller Kate DiCamillo.

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 number-one New York Times best-selling author Kate DiCamillo comes a laugh-out-loud story filled with eccentric, endearing characters.

    Story
    "A solid addition to Ms. DiCamillo's ouvre"
    Any additional comments?

    This allegorical parable masquerading as a pseudo-graphic novel is brilliant. It cleverly combines light, heroism and persistence in a fascinating alchemy made all the more compelling with fantastic illustrations. What can I say - Ms. diCamillo is a sure bet every time!

    "Startling, vibrant vocabulary. Clever dialogue."

    I found the story disjointed, but I also found wonderful moments for discussion with students. Colorful characters.

    Might be good for a 12 year old but honestly Audible!! Why advertise it the way you do! I was tricked into thinking it was a book for adults BUT it is NOT!
