Flora & Ulysses is a truly unique book. DiCamillo's narrative is gentle yet engaging and intelligent. Her characters, though oddballs, are immediately loveable and relatable. Campbell's vivid, hilarious illustrations and comic strip inserts give this book an added dimension that does not come across at all gimicky, rather enriching the narrative, in particular the chapters that focus on Ulysses' point of view. Both warm and laugh out loud funny, it is a treat from start to finish for children and adults alike. It comes as no surprise that this has won the 2014 Newbery Medal, and well deserved it is too. Flora and Ulysses are sure to become favourite characters in many households and their story one to be revisited time and again. ― We Love This Book
Flora and Ulysses is a lovely middle grade book; it's charming, kooky and features a very clever squirrel who I quickly fell in love with. It's fantastically illustrated by K.G. Campbell and is an absolute joy to look at ― Wondrous Reads
Unruly adventures that are refreshingly zany ― Guardian Review
Unique in style, this fabulous story combines traditional storytelling with huge illustrations and comic strips to create an exciting and heart-warming adventure ― The Publisher’s Association’s Best New Children’s Books Summer 2014, The Guardian
This book is Hilarious with a capital H!!!! ― Guardian Reader Review
You should read it, share it and read it again! Original, touching, unique, quirky are all words that sum up this book but to really do it justice make sure to read it for yourself. ― Armadillo
“This book is an absolute treasure!” ― Fallen Star Stories

This Kate DiCamillo book is truly a winner. Flora and Ulysses is about love, teamwork and companionship. This is one of my all time favourite books. I think all nature lovers should read this book about a squirrel, a girl and their adventures together.
Ulysses and Flora met when Ulysses got stuck up a vacuum cleaner. Mrs. Tickingham, Flora's neighbour, got the vacuum cleaner as a birthday present. She was vacuuming on the grass when she swept Ulysses up. Flora shook the vacuum cleaner and the squirrel fell down with patches of fur missing. Flora thought that the squirrel was dead so she tried giving the squirrel mouth to mouth breathing. It worked and she took the squirrel home. She named the squirrel Ulysses after the name of the vacuum cleaner that swept him up.
One of my favourite adventures is at the giant doughnut store where Ulysses is in a box and Flora makes the mistake of talking to him while Rita takes their orders. Ulysses jumps into Rita's hair. Rita screams in panic and then Ulysses flies out and hits the glass.
Another one of the adventures I like is when Mr. Klaus, the cat attacks Flora's father and bites him on the ear. Ulysses distracts the cat by leaping and pulling on his tail. He lifts the cat into the air and throws him towards the wall.
I recommend this book to children over the age of 6 and adults. Happy Reading !
