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.

    "Great book, amazing narration!"

    I listened to this book with my 10 & 12 year olds. We all loved the book. The story line was captivating. But the narration...oh my...it was on point!!! 1/2 way through, I told my kids I was so thankful we chose to listen to this book on Audible rather than purchase it and have me read it aloud due to all the character voices, etc of the narrator. Plus the music at high intense scenes! A+++!

    Story
    "You need the book to follow along"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes- and no- This is a truly entertaining story. However, it is written and illustrated as a graphic novel. If you do not see the artwork and illustrations you miss a great deal of the story that is held not in the words but in the pictures.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The humor! This story is a riot. The little girls imagination is on fire and her stories and interactions are hilarious as a result.


    What does Tara Sands bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She does a great job with the voices and impersonation of different characters. In particular she has a talent for dramatic pauses that I would not have used if reading it on my own.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was on occasion laugh out loud funny. This was in part to listening to it in a car full of young boys.

    "Sweet but definitely for children"

    Very good, would have absolutely loved it as a kid. However, the language gets kind of tiresome and it is far too expensive for a 4 hour listen.

    "Pretty Good"

    Nice audio, but not my style of book. This is a great book for kids who enjoy animals, adventure, and a bit of quirkiness.

    "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!
