wishful wednesday

It’s a very gloomy Wednesday, but I hope everyone is doing fine, stay safe and dry πŸ™‚

Minggu lalu, daftar pemenang Newbery 2014 sudah diumumkan, dan sekali lagi, Kate DiCamillo berhasil menggondol Newbery Medal lewat bukunya, Flora and Ulysses.

flora ulyssesHoly 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 the vacuum cleaner coming, but self-described cynic Flora Belle Buckman, who has read every issue of the comic book Terrible Things Can Happen to You!, is the 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 poetryβ€”and that Flora will be changed too, as she discovers the possibility of hope and the promise of a capacious heart. From #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 formatβ€”a novel interspersed with comic-style graphic sequences and full-page illustrations, all rendered in black-and-white by up-and-coming artist K.G. Campbell.

Nama Kate DiCamillo sudah jadi jaminan mutu, dan sepertinya kali ini bukunya tidak segelap karya-karya sebelumnya, meski masih menghadirkan tokoh binatang dan manusia. Semoga saja segera muncul versi paperbacknya (sementara pemenang Newbery tahun lalu, The One and Only Ivan, masih ngendon di wishlist karena belum keluar-keluar juga paperbacknya, haha).
