COMMUNITY REVIEWS

quirky and endearing submitted by camelsamba on June 24, 2014, 8:07pm Strange (flying, poetry typing, super hero squirrel!). Funny (sometimes laugh out loud). Vocabulary enriching. Endearing.

Flora and Ulysses submitted by mvandermark on July 21, 2014, 3:27pm If you really like funny books that are comical this is the book for you. I like the squirrel because he is cute and funny.

Holy Bagumba! submitted by ckuus on June 21, 2015, 9:53am Flora loves comic books, and her life is changed when she meets Ulysses, a superhero squirrel, and her next-door neighbor, William Spiver. Join Flora on her adventures as she deals with her parents' divorce, arch-nemeses, and wonderfully wise neighbors. Great book for anyone whose parents are going through, or went through, a divorce.

I Love this book submitted by Pidge_Gunderson on July 15, 2017, 12:16pm Poetry, graphic novel, and novel all in one. my teacher told me it was great and when I read it it was amazing.

This book is great submitted by jw on July 31, 2018, 9:22pm The book is a mixture of all types of literature which I personally love.

Flora and Ulysses submitted by jennylou602 on July 18, 2019, 1:58pm The whole family (parents, 7 year old, and 3 year old) loved this book! It was recommended to us after my daughter complained about reading too many things with male protagonists. The books is hilarious, smart, and charming.

Beautiful submitted by sydcha on July 25, 2019, 6:20pm With amazingly crafted jokes, thoroughly developed plot lines, and intriguing witty characters, Flora and Ulysses is a book for all ages. Tune into this great graphic novel for a flying squirrel's exciting adventure!

Great for all ages submitted by pepemama on August 14, 2019, 2:30pm Very entertaining and funny

I guess you need to be 10 years old to enjoy/understand this book submitted by ekjensen on July 3, 2020, 7:34pm As a grandfather, I read this book in hopes of sharing/reading with my grandchildren. The story is odd and curious and repetitious (phrase, book and verbal citations by the characters). Not sure what the appeal would be even for young readers. Help me out fellow reviewers!

Charming Tale submitted by peteralway on June 26, 2021, 11:55pm I found the characters charming, especially Flora, though even the clueless father who proved to not be so clueless after all. And a typing superhero squirrel is of course irresistible. An amusing pastime.
