Flora and Ulysses by Kate DiCamillo

I am currently reading this to my 8 year old. We are reading mostly chapter books now. It’s been so hard to leave the old favourite picture books behind … not for him though … me! I love that he’s growing up and is now doing lots of independent reading but I will miss the old ones. 

Flora and Ulysses is a great read. It’s about a squirrel who gets sucked into a hoover and develops ‘powers’. Oh, and his sidekick a 10 year old girl called Flora. It’s very funny and the chapters are short so there’s lots of “please one more chapter mum”.

I look forward to finding out what happens to the unlikely duo.
