Description

Part comic book and part novel, in Flora and Ulysses, a young girl must guide a super-powered squirrel in fighting for truth, justice and the squirrel way.

Summary of the Book

What happens when a timid squirrel is sucked up into the mystic world inside a Ulysses Super-Suction, Multi-Terrain 2000X vacuum cleaner? Not much except gaining the ability to leap over tall buildings in a single bound, the strength to make it more powerful than a locomotive and the speed to make it faster than a speeding bullet. That is what happens to a squirrel now dubbed Ulysses by his caretaker, a young girl called Flora. Convinced that the poetic Ulysses is a superhero, though quite an unusual type, and that he has a duty towards the country: he must stop his arch-nemesis. The only problem is he doesn't have one yet. Melding detailed illustrations and comic panels, this book speaks out to the child in all of us, incorporating a unique set of characters and wordplay that introduces children to a wonderful world of language.

Must read!

If the title doesn't have you hooked, open the first pages to this book and you'll know you are not putting it down to the very end. A quirky, humorous in the strangest sort of way kind of book that through all its quirkiness speaks of parental love, a child's insecurities and offers a different world view all at once.
