"All the better for a sight of your sweet face--blessings on it! But I'm going--going fast! I shall soon be in my home. God be praised for His mercies!"

Ada sat down on the wooden three-legged stool which the washerwoman, after wiping it with her apron, placed for her accommodation, and listened silently and wonderingly to the dialogue between the aged woman and her visitor. There was no forced conversation, no difficulty in finding themes for discourse. Their subjects were the highest, the most solemn, the most interesting which can occupy the minds of immortals. Mrs. Arkwright was near the grave, and she knew it. She was calmly standing on the brink of the Jordan awaiting the signal from the Lord whom she had loved, and leaning upon the staff of His promise, "When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee."

Ten Reasons Why I LOVE
the 2014 Newbery Medal winner Flora & Ulysses
by Kate DiCamillo

# 10. This book cracked me up.
# 9. The hybrid combo of traditional chapter book and graphic novel segments works seamlessly and pulls
young readers into the story.
#8. More packed-in WORD POWER—malfeasance, capa

I guess I have to explain myself after everyone I know has raved about this book. Initially I was loving it, but the ending didn't work for me. And after I finished it, I realized that while it was cute and quirky, it tried a bit too hard to be cute and quirky. Whatever it was that bothered me, it d

Kate DiCamillo's contributions to the literary canon have been many things, but they have never been silly.

Proof:

The Tiger Rising: subtle & thoughtful
Because of Winn-Dixie: tender & sweet
The Tale of Despereaux: warm & inviting
The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane: heart-wrenching & deeply moving

Not a fan of Kate DiCamillo (I know, I know, blasphemy!) I only picked this up because it's a National Book Award longlist. I read it in a day and I must (begrudgingly) admit that I didn't hate it. Not much happens, but in a middle grade novel, that's not a bad thing. There are quirky characters, fu

WHAT I LIKED: I am a huge Kate DiCamillo fan, so I was really excited to see that she has a new book coming out this month. As an extra bonus, Flora & Ulysses is told partially via short, full-page cartoon strips, which will make it especially popular with 8-11 year

Good reads win (thanks again love)  

The plot was jagged and torn by too many subplot and divisions. It had no clear indication of an initial or final destination which was one of its largest failings. Within it we have the magically superhero squirrel. Flora looking for independence, security, and l

Sheer delight! I couldn't put this book down, it was both tender and humorous, and reminded me more of BECAUSE OF WINN-DIXIE or THE TIGER RISING than DiCamillo's last few books. Then I passed it on to my son, and he had the same reaction: reading all day until he finished!

Read aloud 2021: Read this

I like a bit of subtlety with my “meaning”. What I mean by that is that when I pick up a book for kids, it’s tough on me, as a reader, to go through something saturated and imbued with the weight and splendor of meaning on every page. It bogs me down. And, to be frank, this is what makes it so hard

What an incredibly delightful book! I read it out loud to my 10 year old daughter (so nice to read to her again!) and we both were huge fans of Flora, Tootie, William Spiver, Mrs. Meecham, George Beckham and of course Ulysses! There is an absolutely enchanting sense of magic and wonder as Flora brea

4/5
Una historia tierna, disparatada y llena de valores, con unos personajes entrañables y que trata muchos temas, con profundidad (todo lo posible por ser una obra infantil), humor y cariño. Una lectura muy recomendada.
