Kate Dicamillo

She went on to receive a 2001 Newbery Honor, and the book was made into a film in 2005. DiCamillo has been continuously and impressively successful, winning the 2004 Newbery Medal for THE TALE OF DESPEREAUX, and writing numerous well-received books, including THE MIRACULOUS JOURNEY OF EDWARD TULANE and the delightful Mercy Watson early reading series.
Praise
"Original, touching and oh-so-funny tale starring an endearingly implausible superhero and a not-so-cynical girl."
From the Publisher
Editors Note Holy unanticipated occurrences! A cynic meets an unlikely superhero in a genre-breaking new novel by master storyteller Kate DiCamillo. 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 the 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. From #1 New York Times best-selling author Kate DiCamillo comes a laugh-out-loud story filled with eccentric, endearing characters and featuring an exciting new format?a novel interspersed with comic-style graphic sequences and full-page illustrations, all rendered in black-and-white by up-and-coming artist K. G. Campbell.
Annotation A chance encounter between a vacuum cleaner and a squirrel launches a comedic tale of friendship, superheroes, and poetry. Ten-year-old Flora, the only child of divorced parents, is a bit of a curmudgeon until Ulysses, a squirrel regurgitated by a vacuum cleaner and newly endowed with the power to fly and write poetry, pledges his fealty to her when she smuggles him into her bedroom. She must protect him and prove to others that he has superpowers. The two perspectives alternate: the comic-book-infused Flora with the Zen-inspired Ulysses. Flora's heart grows bigger and the adventures that ensue are meant to make children laugh out loud. Throughout the novel are comic-book-style black-and-white graphic illustrations of Ulysses' antics.
