Flora and Ulysses (Thing 1)

We read Flora and Ulysses by Kate DiCamillo. Self-proclaimed cynic, Flora Belle Buckman, befriends a squirrel, Ulysses, who has turned into a superhero after getting sucked up a vacuum. Now he can fly, has super strength, and can write poetry. What Flora didn't expect, though, was for Ulysses' archnemesis to be her own mother.

What I liked: Everything! The characters were quirky, Ulysses was adorable, and we laughed out loud several times. It was simple and sweet, and it ended far too quickly.

What I didn't like: ...

I give this book

It's a great book to read as a family, because anyone--boy or girl, no matter what age--will enjoy this book. Guaranteed.

Flora and Ulysses (Thing 2)

We read Flora and Ulysses by Kate Dicamillo. It's about a girl named Flora who has divorced parents and lives with her mom. One day a squirrel got vacuumed up by a . . . vacuum. "HOLY BAGUMBA!" Said Flora.

I would give this book
