Publisher Comments:

From bestselling author/illustrator Tedd Arnold, creator of PARTS and GREEN WILMA, comes the hilarious FLY GUY! It's easy to read and it comes with a shiny foil cover!

"A fly was flying. He was looking for something to eat. Something tasty. Something slimy. A boy was walking. He was looking for something to catch. Something smart. Something for The Amazing Pet Show."

The boy and fly meet and so begins a beautiful friendship. Er, and so begins a very funny friendship. Using hyperbole, puns, slapstick, and silly drawings, bestselling author/illustrator Tedd Arnold creates an easy reader that is full of fun. With an eye-catching holographic cover. This is the first in a series of four.

Review:

"A fly went flying,' opens Arnold's (Parts) brief, playful tale, structured in three chapters. At the same time, 'A boy went walking.' The winged fellow is looking for food and the boy is searching for a critter for the upcoming Amazing Pet Show. The two equally and comically bug-eyed beings meet when the fly collides with the human hero's nose ('boink') and the lad captures it in a glass jar. After the infuriated insect stomps his foot and says, 'Buzz!' the amazed boy replies, 'You know my name! You are the smartest pet in the world!' Buzz shows his new pet, which he names Fly Guy, to his parents; his father announces that flies are pests and grabs a swatter — until the sly fly lands on Buzz's nose and calls him by name. In one of the book's funniest pictures, Fly Guy is dwarfed by the hot dog Buzz places in his jar, most of which he happily consumes. Though the pet show judges tell Buzz that flies don't qualify as pets, Fly Guy rises to the occasion and wows the judges with various feats, clinching the prize for smartest pet. Suitably wacky cartoon art accompanies the text, which is simple enough for beginning readers ready to soar to a chapter-book format. Ages 4-8. (Sept.)"

My daughter, who is 4, and I love the "Fly Guy" books
--- and almost everything written or illustrated by Tedd Arnold. I highly recommend this book and "Super Fly Guy." We read the latter almost every day.
