Fly Guy Fan Club

I have to jump on the bandwagon with Book Moot's and A Chair, A Fireplace and a Tea Cozy's assessments of the early reader/beginning chapter book Hi! Fly Guy, by Tedd Arnold. Camille at Book Moot calls it "terrific," adding "Arnold's comic illustrations punctuate the story and provide plenty of laughs."  Liz at A Chair... says, "Cool cover, cute story..." Yep, and yep!

The plot: A boy wants to keep a fly as a pet; adults are dubious. You see the built-in conflict. Beginning readers will enjoy the silliness. I did, too. Winner of a Geisel (Dr. Seuss) honor from the American Library Association. Good news for us Fly Guy fans: I just read on Arnold's web site that Super Fly Guy, the second in the series, was published several months ago.
