Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted over at Pen to Paper. This meme is where you showcase one book that is on your wishlist and that you can’t wait to get off your wishlist and into your hands.
Welcome to an awesome weekly meme: Wishlist Wednesday! This is a blog hop to share something that I am very excited to read…but haven’t read yet!
Flora and Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures, by Kate diCammillo and
illustrated by K.G. Campbell, has been on many a classmate’s #imwayr blog! It has been on my Amazon wishlist and To Be Read List for a while. I’ve finally just broken down and ordered it. I can’t wait to read it!
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 self-described cynic 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 changed too, as she discovers the possibility of hope and the promise of a capacious heart.
