An Illuminated Adventure of a Rodent and a Girl
Reviewed in the United States on February 18, 2016
I’m a third grader at an elementary school in Wisconsin, and this is what I think about the book, Flora and Ulysses. The main character in the book, Flora, is a 10 year old natural born cynic. Well that’s what she likes to call herself. Her mother thinks she’s weird because she has a superhero rodent named Ulysses as her best friend. This book is also illustrated with comic strips that are great for allowing the reader to visualize the story. It will always have a kick of humor but stays true to the author’s style with a sweet, heartwarming ending. If you or your child loves a book where the genre is fantasy and always will be based on animals with human like characteristics, then Kate Dicamillo is your author, and this is a great book for you.
