Flora & Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures

By Kate DiCamillo
Price: $12.99; Ages: 8-12

Self-described cynic Flora Belle Buckman has just saved a squirrel named Ulysses from getting stuck in a vacuum cleaner. Both Flora and Ulysses are amazed to discover that the whole ordeal has caused Ulysses to be "born anew" with super powers of strength, flight, and misspelled poetry. The imaginative novel is interspersed with comic-book style full-page illustrations. It won the 2014 Newbery Medal.
