Hello! It's me - the house fly. Open my book and take a look inside. There's never a dull moment. The Fly doesn't understand why people won't share their food with him, or play with him ... and why do they keep trying to swat him? He's not doing any harm. Be careful not to swat the Fly yourself when you close the book in this fun and buzzing novelty book from Petr Horacek.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 2—Poor Fly just can't catch a break. Even though he's just a normal housefly, people don't like him in the house. No matter where he goes or what he does, everyone wants to swat him. "Flap!" Through humorous text ("After breakfast, I do my exercises—156 times around the lamp keeps me fit!") and bright mixed-media illustrations, including several pages that cleverly serve as a flip-the-flap fly swatter, this will be a sure hit with the preschool crowd. Pair this with Lydia Monks's Aaaarrgghh! Spider! (HMH, 2004) for a fun-filled storytime about sympathetic creepy crawlies. VERDICT A great companion title for fans of Tedd Arnold's "Fly Guy" books (Scholastic).—Jessica Marie, Salem Public Library, OR
