I like the Fly Guy series and this is one of the best. Illustrations combine so well with the text and its wonderful repetitions.

Yay, Fly Guy!

I did notice the lack of a period at the end of the "And drove" spread. Would you consider this a mistake or intentional? Granted, the next page begins with sentence fragment which could be considered part of the "and drove" sentence. However "But" is capitalized.

I still believe this book is a strong candidate, but I would love to hear what others think.

I am just a little surprised that an entire series exists about a fly; however, the pictures are nice, and in a slightly unique style that seems to match the story.

I agree with what Teresa said about the lack of a period. I think that there should be a period there. Other than the lack of the period, I think that the book is a good book and I like the illustrations. I think that boys will like this book very much.

I felt that this book was completely disjointed. There was no flow to it. They just worried about leaving Fly Guy behind. The concept of a pet fly is humorous and boys will love it but the plot was just too thin for me.

This book was not a favorite of mine. It did not really keep my interest. The most interesting part was to find out where Fly Guy was hiding when Buzz's parents thought he was missing. There were some repetitive phrases for beginning readers, but overall I felt the book lacked something...

I have to agree with Holly's comments. The idea of a pet fly is cute and I do think that kids would be interested and find it funny. The repeated phrases are good for beginning readers and the illustrations are funny. It wasn't one of my favorites, and I feel that there just isn't enough substance in the story.
