Flora & Ulysses
DiCamillo has done it again! Perfection in a book. Last week when this came into my library I knew then that it would win the Newbery (ask my husband if you don't believe me, I was without a doubt absolutely certain that this book must get the Newbery).
The story is original, the illustrations provide an extra dimension of awesomeness instantly making it appealing and endearing (I'm not kidding! When I opened up this book for the first time, before I had even read the first page but had seen the first illustrated sequence, I just loved this book). Congratulations to Kate, and thank you so much for yet again doing what you do so very well.
Of course, I wish I had my very own Ulysses because squirrels are just so loveable...even the hungry ones.
