Description

Winner of the 2014 Newbery Medal

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.
