Buzz has a pet fly, which he brings to school. Fly Guy’s favorite part is the lunchroom, where he makes friends with the lunch lady, Roz. But the principal doesn’t want flies in the cafeteria, so he fires Roz and hires a terrible cook. What can Buzz and Fly Guy do to save the situation?
This book has two to three sentences on each page. There are no contractions. The illustrations are largely against a white background, leaving plenty of room for the black text.
The story is cute, and ends happily. The image of Fly Guy drinking a soup of fish heads and sour milk is gross enough to make any first grader grin. The cartoon illustrations match the tone of the book very well. This is an excellent choice for children beginning to read, particularly for boys. If you enjoy this book, look for more titles about Fly Guy, of which there are several.
