Featured Book of the Month - September 2015
We are pleased to announce our September children's title for the Featured Book of the Month program!
Flora & Ulysses: the Illuminated Adventure
by 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 Flora Belle Buckman, who has read every issue of the comic book Terrible Things Can Happen to You!, is 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 changd too, as she discovers the possibility of hope. This is a laugh-out-loud story filled with eccentric, endearing characters and features an exciting new format -- a novel interspersed with comic-style graphic sequences and full-page illustrations.
