Old Black Fly

Old Black Fly Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nothing drives a family crazy faster than an old black fly on a hot summer day, especially when the family's a little crazy already. And this fly is as bad as they come. He knows every low-down trick in the book--and won't rest until he's gone through them all.

He ate on the crust

of the Apple pie.

He bothered the Baby

and made her cry.

Shoo fly!

Shoo fly!

Shooo.

Synopsis:

"Old black fly's been buzzin' around and he's had a very busy bad day". There's an old black fly. There's a family. And there's a hot summer day. One of them has to go. Aylesworth's rhyming words--with their shout-aloud refrain--move as fast as the fly, and Gammell's explosive art is unforgettable. Full-color illustrations.

Synopsis:

"Aylesworths buoyant, rhythmic verse provides inspiration for a wondrous evolution of Gammells style.... Sheer delight for eyes, ears, and funny-bones."

--Kirkus Reviews, pointer
