Review of Flora & Ulysses-Kate DiCamillo

This is a great book for readers 7-12, with fun illustrations by K.G. Campbell.  Flora spends all her free time reading about a comic book superhero.  Her parents are split up and she's fairly sure that her mother loves an ugly shepherdess lamp more she loves her daughter.  Flora, a self-described cynic, finds her whole world turned around when she rescues a squirrel who has been sucked up by a vacuum cleaner.  Ulysses, the squirrel, just may be a superhero, plus he writes poetry.  Adventures galore in this lively tale! 4 Elves - highly recommended
