Flóra a Odyseus


Desaťročná Flóra je rodená cynička, neznáša romantiku, miluje komiksy a čerpá z nich užitočné rady. Len vďaka nim sa jej podarí zachrániť veveričiaka Odysea pred strašnou smrťou v útrobách vysávača. Znovuzrodený Odyseus sa mení na superhrdinu, vie lietať, rozumie ľudskej reči a píše básne. Flórina mama píše ľúbostné romány. Niekedy to vyzerá, že má svoje knihy radšej ako vlastnú dcéru a Odysea z duše nenávidí. Flóra, Odyseus a nevidiaci chlapec William Spiver spolu prežijú dobrodružstvá, ktoré všetkým zmenia život. Príbeh dotvárajú vtipné čiernobiele ilustrácie v štýle Flóriných obľúbených komiksov.

Príbeh o Zúfalčekovi


Vtipná rozprávka o troch nezvyčajných hrdinoch: myšiačikovi, ktorý namiesto obhrýzania knihy číta, Princeznej Pea, do ktorej sa zaľúbi, a potkanovi Roscurovi, ktorý chce zničiť celé kráľovstvo. Príbeh o Zúfalčekovi pripomína trochu klasické rozprávky bratov Grimmovcov. Je to zdanlivo jednoduchý príbeh, v ktorom sa skrýva veľa vážnych myšlienok o láske, súcite, obetovaní sa, utrpení, pomste a odpustení. Autorka šarmantným spôsobom vážne oslovuje čitateľa a za tou všetkou vážnosťou cítime zároveň jej jemný humor. Príbeh je napísaný jednoduchým, ale premyslene vypracovaným milým štýlom rozprávok, ktorý sa určite dobre počúva, keď deťom čítate knižku nahlas.

Flora & Ulysses : The Illuminated Adventures


Holy unanticipated occurrences! A cynic meets an unlikely superhero in a genre-breaking new novel by master storyteller Kate DiCamillo. It begins, as the best superhero stories do, with a tragic accident that has unexpected consequences. The squirrel never saw it coming - the vacuum cleaner, that is. As for self-described cynic Flora Belle Buckman, she has read every issue of the comic book Terrible Things Can Happen to You!, so she is just the right person to step in and save him. What neither can predict is that Ulysses (the squirrel) has been born anew, with powers of strength, flight and misspelled poetry. And Flora will be changed too, as she discovers the possibility of hope and the promise of a capacious heart. From No. 1 New York Times best-selling author Kate DiCamillo comes a laugh-out-loud story filled with eccentric endearing characters and featuring an exciting new format - a novel interspersed with comic-style graphic sequences, plus full-page illustrations, all rendered in black-and-white by up-and-coming artist K. G. Campbell. Features: a major new novel from No. 1 New York Times Bestseller and Newbery Award Winner Kate DiCamillo; a departure for Kate, a mix of narrative and comic strip, bound up in a beautiful hardback edition with jacket; and humorous and heartfelt black-and-white artwork throughout by up-and-coming artist K.G. Campbell.

Louisianas Way Home


Follow-up to the New York Times Bestselling Raymie Nightingale, from an internationally revered author, twice winner of the Newbery Medal. When Louisiana Elefante's granny wakes her up in the middle of the night to tell her that the day of reckoning has arrived and they have to leave home immediately, Louisiana isn't overly worried. After all, Granny has many middle-of-the-night ideas. But this time, things are different. This time, Granny intends for them never to return. Separated from best friends Raymie and Beverly, Louisiana struggles to oppose the winds of fate (and Granny) and find a way home. But as Louisiana's life becomes entwined with the lives of the people of the small Georgia town in which they find themselves - including a surly motel owner, a walrus-like minister and a mysterious boy with a crow on his shoulder - she starts to worry that she is destined only for goodbyes. (Which could be due to the curse on Louisiana's and Granny's heads. But that is a story for another time.)Called "one of DiCamillo's most singular and arresting creations" by The New York Times Book Review, the heartbreakingly irresistible Louisiana Elefante was introduced to readers in Raymie Nightingale - and now, with humour and tenderness, Kate DiCamillo returns to tell her story.

Beverly, Right Here


Revisiting once again the world of Raymie Nightingale and Louisiana's Way Home, No.1 New York Timesbestselling author Kate DiCamillo turns her focus to the tough-talking, inescapably tenderhearted Beverly Tapinski. Beverly put her foot down on the gas. They went faster still. This was what Beverly wanted - what she always wanted. To get away. To get away as fast as she could. To stay away. Beverly Tapinski has run away from home plenty of times, but that was when she was just a kid. By now, she figures, it's not running away ... it's leaving. Determined to make it on her own, Beverly finds a job and a place to live and tries to forget about her dog, Buddy, now buried underneath the orange trees back home; her friend Raymie, whom she left without a word; and her mum, Rhonda, who has never cared about anyone but herself. Beverly doesn't want to depend on anyone, and she definitely doesn't want anyone to depend on her. But despite her best efforts, she can't help forming connections with the people around her - and, gradually, she learns to see herself through their eyes. In a touching, funny and fearless conclusion to her sequence of novels about the beloved Three Rancheros, No. 1 New York Times bestselling author Kate DiCamillo tells the story of a character who will break your heart and put it back together again.
