Book Review


When Flora witnesses a tragic accident involving a squirrel and a vacuum, her adventure begins. Enter Ulysses—a superhero squirrel who can lift heavy objects, fly, and type poetry. Flora’s mother is not happy when her already-odd daughter has brought home a squirrel as a “friend” and orders her ex-husband to get rid of the squirrel. On an outing with her father, Flora’s father develops a liking for Ulysses as he saves him from a crazy cat and causes a ruckus in the diner. Flora’s mother is left with no choice but to kidnap Ulysses, leaving Flora and her father to embark on a rescue mission.
