The 2014 Newbery Medal winner, written by beloved storyteller Kate DiCamillo. 

Holy unanticipated occurrences! From #1 New York Times best-selling author Kate DiCamillo comes a laugh-out-loud story filled with eccentric, endearing characters and featuring an exciting new format—a novel interspersed with comic-style graphic sequences and full-page illustrations, all rendered in black and white by K. G. Campbell. Includes an excerpt of Kate DiCamillo's newest novel, Raymie Nightingale.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 24, 2013 – Newbery Medalist DiCamillo and illustrator Campbell meld prose with comics sequences in a broad comedy tinged with sadness. Bitter about her parents divorce, Flora Buckman has withdrawn into her favorite comic book, The Amazing Incandesto! and memorized the advisories in its ongoing bonus feature, Terrible Things Can Happen to You! She puts those life-saving tips into action when a squirrel is swallowed whole by a neighbor s new vacuum cleaner, the Ulysses Super-Suction Multi-Terrain 2000X. Flora resuscitates the squirrel, christens him after the vacuum, and witnesses a superhero-like transformation: Ulysses is now ber-strong, can fly, and composes poetry. Despite supremely quirky characters and dialogue worthy of an SAT prep class, there s real emotion at the heart of this story involving two kids who have been failed by the most important people in their lives: their parents. It s into this profound vacuum that Ulysses really flies, demonstrating an unconditional love for his rescuer, trumped only perhaps by his love for food and a desire to make the letters on the keyboard speak the truth of his heart. Ages 10 up. Author s agent: Holly McGhee, Pippin Properties. Illustrator s agent: Lori Nowicki, Painted Words.

I love this book. The book captivates you and keeps you reading. For me personally, I like the ending the best. It’s when everyone confesses what really happened and, it is also the most emotional part - Anushka K 10 years old

Flora and Ulysses

This book was a powerful story about not judging a book by its cover. Floras mom realized what the squirrel was and to Flora what her mom was.
