118. Flora and Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures by Kate DiCamillo
Flora and Ulysses is a Newberry Award winning book. It features a young girl named Flora who becomes involved in a crazy adventure with a squirrel she names Ulysses who develops super powers after being sucked into a vacuum cleaner. He helps reconnect her to parents who have divorced. The book is interspersed with humorous comic drawings. It’s a very cute kid’s book and I definitely seeing it appeal to the age group it was aimed at.
