Ten-year-old cynic Flora Belle Buckman and her superhero squirrel, Ulysses, star in this middle-grade adventure. Flora’s parents are divorced and the comic book series Terrible Things Can Happen to You! is her favorite escape. After Flora saves Ulysses from the vacuum cleaner, he is born anew with powers of strength, flight, and misspelled poetry. Together, the dynamic duo begin to vanquish evil and help each other to believe, hope, and find love.
