Flora and Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures
This laugh-out-loud tale starts, as the best superhero stories do, with a tragic accident and a surprising twist. The squirrel never saw the vacuum cleaner coming, but self-described cynic Flora Belle Buckman is just the right person to step in and save him!
What neither of them expect is that Ulysses (the squirrel) ends up with amazing superpowers and Flora starts changing too, as she discovers new ways to look at the world.
Together the new friends set out to conquer villains, defend the defenceless and protect the weak - with hilarious results!
Flora & Ulysses: The lluminated Adventures is a mix of narrative and comic strip, perfect for readers aged eight and above.
