Summary

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 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 number-one New York Times best-selling author Kate DiCamillo comes a laugh-out-loud story filled with eccentric, endearing characters.

Hard to listen to...

This book was a struggle to listen to and the story lacked a specific genuine feeling...

A chore to listen to the story and reader

My girls and I couldn’t get into this book. It was a chore to listen to the story with interest. The reader was a little annoying to listen to at times. I often had to think to myself, “okay what is happening here?” Often I had to rewind to recall what we missed because we lost interest in the story. Maybe we just couldn't get into this genre of fiction.

Kids laughing and learning.

Great story of love and redemption. Laughs abound and vocabulary grows. Who would have thought a runaway vacuum cleaner could create a super squirtle!!!

Like watching Nickelodeon

This book was too hyper for me. A ton of things are happening but nothing really. The main character's mind jumps here and there so quickly, maybe it is enjoyable for someone under 10. I'm a quiet sort and I wouldn't have liked it as a kid. it's like one of those loud shows on Nickelodeon.

Book of awesomeness

In 1-10 I would give it a 9. The only thing that I don't love is the lamp. I would recommend this to people that like superheroes. I would give it a 9 because it was great all around.
