About Flora & Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures

Comic book fan and natural-born cynic Flora Belle Buckman and Ulysses, a flying, superhero, poetry-writing squirrel, join forces to overcome Ulysses’ arch-nemesis, Flora’s mother and encounter a quirky cast of characters. Through poignant, laugh-out-loud episodes, this homage to comic books is a testament to the power of love.

From the committee: “Our dedicated committee of 15 considered hundreds and hundreds of titles in our quest for the best books for children, and I am delighted with our selections,” said Newbery Medal Committee Chair Elizabeth C. Orsburn.
