From Booklist:

Ages 3^-6. It's one thing when a "beastly black fly" starts buzzing around birthday bear Bertha's head. It's quite another when it dive-bombs her gorgeous cake. Then big, clumsy Bertha springs into action, becoming a pest herself as she swats and stomps, leaps and lurches after the fly. She is ignorant of the ruckus she's causing until she finds her way back to the field where the chase began--and comes face-to-face with the angry critters she stomped on during her wild chase. This is just the sort of slapstick humor that children like, and the comedy is nicely carried through in both text and art. Onomatopoeias make the simple text great for reading aloud, and Argent's freewheeling style is perfect for depicting Bertha's uninhibited leaps across landscapes concealing animals ripe for being disturbed. And what about that pesky fly? It just keeps buzzing along. A satisfying story. Stephanie Zvirin

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1. In this cumulative adventure, a big, black fly invades Bertha Bear's outdoor birthday bash and dive-bombs her seven-layer cake. She tries to swat him, and he leads her on a merry chase over the countryside. En route and by mistake, she swats an indignant camel, crocodile, stork, and tortoise, and each joins the pursuit. Circling back to the party site, Bertha placates the angry animals with pieces of cake, and the fly once again zooms saucily by. Huge, action-filled, pen-and-ink and watercolor pictures follow the odyssey with humor and verve as the emphatic text swoops up and down across the page. A lively and entertaining read-aloud.?Patricia Pearl Dole, formerly at First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, VA
