Kate Dicamillo does it again with this beautiful story of friendship between animal and human. Flora is a lonely child who is affected deeply by the divorce of her parents. She is a self-declared cynic and hates that her mom sits up most nights typing romance novels. Flora makes an unusual friend with Ulysses, who is a squirrel, in an unusual way. Flora and Ulysses need each other. This book is a extraordinary example of how animals can be therapeutic to humans in all situations.
Your child will love this action packed book that has the best ending ever.
