Una niña y una ardilla forman la pareja más insólita y divertida de la literatura contemporánea. Todo comienza una tarde de verano en la cocina de la señora y el señor Tickham. Este último ha decidido regalarle a su esposa la más moderna y avanzada aspiradora del mundo. En cuanto conectan el aparato, éste se vuelve loco y empieza a tragarse todo lo que encuentra a su paso, incluyendo a una simpática ardilla llamada Ulises. Por fortuna, la cínica adolescente Flora está cerca y logra salvar al peludo animalito. Lo que ocurre a continuación es sorprendente: el accidente provoca que Ulises adquiera los poderes de un verdadero superhéroe. Una alocada aventura llena de humor, pero también de ternura que encantará a los jóvenes y a los adultos. ¡Uno los mejores libros para niños de 2013 de acuerdo con Publishers Weekly y The New York Times!

A young girl and a squirrel form an unusual friendship after a tragic accident. Ulysses, the squirrel, accidentally gets swallowed up in the new vacuum cleaner that spins out of control. Luckily, self-proclaimed cynic, Flora Belle Buckman, is nearby and comes to the furry animal's rescue. What happens next is amazing: Ulysses acquires the super powers of flight, tenacity, and misspelled poetry. Flora is changed too as she discovers both the power and strength of hope. From #1 New York Times–bestselling author Kate DiCamillo is a laugh-out-loud adventure with a bit of tenderness, interspersed with comic-style graphic sequences and illustrations that will delight readers both young and old.
