5.0 out of 5 stars Laughs a-plenty, amidst lovely illustrations and the best poems by a squirrel you'll ever come across, 2 Nov 2013
This review is from: Flora & Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures (Hardcover)
Hugely smart and buckets of fun - and not just for kids.

Flora loves her comic - Terrible Things that can happen to you. It has prepared her for almost every eventuality life might throw at her. And often makes her think in and see the world as a comic book. But she's not wholly prepared when next door's vacuum cleaner sucks up a squirrel and gives him superpowers. Yes that's right, read that sentence again if you need to.

Naming him Ulysses, Flora knows he has a purpose - to do good. Unfortunately her romance-writing mother would not understand, so Flora must seek advice from other sources, possibly 'William Spiver' (don't call him William), her neighbour Tootie or her comic-loving father.

It's madcap, it's fast-paced. Ulysses is a pretty well drawn (no pun intended) character with a fairly impressive sideline in poetry. Flora and William Spiver (don't call him William) are fun to follow and there's lots of humour in their situations as well as occasional pathos.

The comic side of this is hilarious, illustrations beautiful, story very engaging and style original and appealing. Give it a try - adults and their offspring.
