Flora, a little girl, meets up with a flying squirrel, Ulysses, and they become fast friends while sharing a few daring adventures. Great illustrations!

I love that the main character loves comics and so bits of the action take place in small "comic book" inserts into the text. I would love to read the Further Adventures of Flora and Ulysses if DiCamillo were to write them.
Run, don't walk, to your library to get this book!
