Join in with our Flora and Ulysses reading group next week!

November’s Nosy Crow Reading Group is taking place next week – and we’d love for you to join in!

We’ll be discussing the Newbery Medal-winning Flora and Ulysses by Kate DiCamillo, which the Boston Globe called “a truly inventive and appealing children’s middle-grade novel”.

As usual, we’ve prepared a few questions in advance to get everyone thinking – here’s some of what we might be talking about:

1. Is Flora really a cynic?

2. Who is this book “for”?

3. What does the style add – or detract – from the book? How important is plot, do you think?

4. Does Flora’s mother really have Flora’s wellbeing at heart? What sort of parents are the Buckmans?

5. How do the illustrations interact with the text in Flora and Ulysses?

We’ll be meeting on Wednesday, November 19 at 6.30pm, here at the Nosy Crow offices – 10a Lant Street, London, SE1 1QR. There are still some places if you’d like to join us – if so, send an email to tom at nosycrow dot com. And if you can’t make it here, but would still like to take part, please do join in online, either on Twitter with the #NCGKids hashtag, or in the comments section of this post.

We hope you can join us!
