Synopsis: An introduction to flies, a taxonomic order of insects, that includes descriptions of fourteen species and recommendations for finding, identifying, and observing them

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3-5-Not all flies deserve to be swatted! As this lucid introduction demonstrates, some species behave in ways that benefit humankind. After briefly describing some general characteristics and explaining the basics of scientific classification, Miller profiles 14 different kinds of flies on separate double-page spreads. A sharp, full-color close-up of an adult of each species accompanies the text. Chapter headings provide the common and scientific names of the species discussed, and their average sizes. The last chapter provides guidelines on observing flies outdoors. While this title is clearly written and well organized, it omits some useful information. There is not much detail on anatomy-flies' compound eyes are not mentioned, for instance. The last chapter, which suggests that readers do field research, does not mention the necessity for adult supervision. Another minor flaw-there are some tinges of anthropomorphism. While there are a number of general introductions to insects that include flies, there are few books specifically on this subject. Barrie Watts's Fly (Silver Burdett, 1997) concentrates solely on the greenbottle fly and is aimed at younger readers. Despite some minor flaws, this book will be a useful addition.-Karey Wehner, San Francisco Public Library
