Flora and Ulysses:The Illuminated Adventures

There is one book you have to read (I will be mad at you if you don't)! Now get over here and read "Flora & Ulysses! It is awesome.

There are two main characters in this story. Flora, is a girl who is a cynic. The other main character is a an unassuming squirrel. Flora sees a woman who vacuums up a squirrel who is Ulysses, this is the unassuming squirrel. Flora has an interesting life. For example there is a boy named William who very annoying. He says he’s temporally blind. One day, Ulysses, the squirrel is gone. He was kidnapped or squirrel-napped or something. Flora thinks Ulysses is a super hero because he is not a flying squirrel, but yet, he can fly. Will Flora find him when he’s lost? Will Flora see him again? Read the book to find out.

I like this book because it is funny. Another reason this book is fun to read is because it has comic strips in it. Also I like it because it has lots of crazy things. For example Flora and Ulysses go to a restaurant with giant donuts. It does not relate to my life because who would have a squirrel with almost no hair for a pet? Also I would not have a father named George Buckman.

I would recommend this book because it is funny, interesting and cool.

Emi rates this book 5 out of 5 stars.
