Excellent read with vocabulary learning cleverly inserted into a catchy tale. The young can learn the meaning of such words as capricious, euphemism, arch-nemesis, and my favorite: "Holy bagumba", (yes, I believe that it was created for this story). A girl named Flora bonds with a squirrel named Ulysses who loves and understands her. Mother becomes the enemy and poor father, no longer in the home, loves and misses his daughter. He is imaginative, thoughtful, and funny. Is it always this way with the parent who is no longer present in a home? Probably not but it's good reading anyway.
