Flora and Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures

Kate DiCamillo, read by Tara Sands. Listening Library, unabridged, four CDs, 4.5 hrs., $30 ISBN 978-0-449-01513-1
When a squirrel is sucked inside a neighbor’s vacuum cleaner, Flora Belle Buckman—who is still recovering from her parents’ divorce—puts down her favorite comic book (Terrible Things Can Happen to You!) and springs into action. But once she has saved the squirrel—whom she names Ulyssess—Flora soon discovers that the animal has some magical powers. Narrator Sands delivers a charming and lighthearted performance that listeners will love. Sands’s ability to create colorful, over-the-top characters is an ideal match for DiCamillo’s quirky novel, and the voices she produces here are pitch-perfect. This is a fun-filled audio experience. Ages 10–up. A Candlewick hardcover. (Sept)
