    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 the 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 #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
    up-and-coming artist K. G. Campbell.
