Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

One evening, Buzz makes monster puzzles and monster masks with his pet fly, Fly Guy. That night, Buzz dreams that Fly Guy creates an enormous monster, Frankenfly, which goes out of control. The nightmare ends the next morning, when Buzz awakens and finds what Fly Guy really created that night. For all the scary-monster thrills delivered here, there’s reassurance, too: you can only be so afraid of a monster with a Band-Aid on his nose. Beginning readers will appreciate the vibrant art and simple text. Once again, Arnold takes a fresh approach to the theme of boy-and-his-pet affection that unifies the Fly Guy series. Grades K-2. --Carolyn Phelan

More About the Author

Born in Elmira, New York, Tedd grew up in a family of six with three brothers. His family lived on a farm in Pennsylvania for several years then returned to Elmira until Tedd was ten years old. His father's work then required that they move to Gainesville, Florida. There, Tedd's first art lessons in an abandoned dentist's office over the Happy Hour pool hall eventually led to a fine arts degree from the University of Florida. He and his wife, Carol, started their family in Tallahassee where Tedd worked as a commercial illustrator. Carol, a Kindergarten teacher, drew Tedd's attention to children's books. Their first son, Walter, inspired his breakthrough picture book, No Jumping on the Bed!. His second son, William, now stars in No More Water in the Tub!, a sequel to his first book. He has now published more than 30 books as author and illustrator. When not working on his books, Tedd's interests include tennis, sketching, reading, coin collecting, and the computer."The inspiration to begin writing and illustrating for children came from my wife, Carol. As a kindergarten teacher, she collected picture books. I was attracted to their colorful pages and the way the words and pictures played with each other, much like the captioned cartoons I had drawn when I was young."Perhaps the biggest surprise of my career as an author is that I'm now going back to elementary school! Visiting young readers in classrooms and libraries is something I love. Kids keep me on my toes and they ask a lot of questions. The number one question seems to be, 'Where do you get your ideas?' It's also the hardest question to answer because every idea is different. Some ideas seem to pop out of thin air -- while I'm in the shower or walking the dog. Others come from reading or research. But most of my ideas come from my family and the things they do and say."For instance, one time when my first son, Walter, was five years old, I found him lying on the couch, looking pale as a ghost and clutching a Bible to his chest. He was praying! When I asked what was wrong, he wouldn't answer. In fact, he wouldn't even open his mouth. My wife, Carol, finally coaxed a response from him: he pointed inside his mouth. Carol exclaimed, 'You have a loose tooth!' Walter's eyes nearly popped out with fright. We quickly assured him that it was perfectly okay for his tooth to come loose and that a new one would replace it. But Carol and I looked at each other and realized that despite all our efforts to be good parents, we had somehow completely forgotten to warn Walter that teeth fall out! He had thought he was falling apart! I made a little note in my journal; then ten years later, I expanded that memory into my book Parts."Tedd Arnold lives in Elmira, New York, with his wife, Carol, two sons, Walter and William, two cats, Cody and Frankie, and one dog, Hershey.

My readers are two 2-1/2-yer-old girls. They like! And so does mom.

I never thought I'd think a picture book about a fly would be cute, but this fly IS cute! Big eyes and adorable expressions. I like reading a book about bugs that doesn't depict them as icky.

And I never thought a picture book about a fly and Frankenstein situation would be sweet...but it IS! All of the books in this series have a wonderful undercurrent of friendship. The boy and his fly are total buds. A nice departure from the usual friendship between a boy and his dog.

We have two in the series, and I think we will get Fly Guy #8: Fly Guy Meets Fly Girl! next.

As pretty much always, Fly Guy doesn't disappoint here. Arnold's pictures are witty, bold and reward looking closely; the text is pretty much perfect for the very early reader; the plot and resolution are sweet and funny and representative of the enduring bond between a boy and his pet fly. I'll kind of miss these when my youngest gets too old for them.

We picked this book up from K's school library.
For me I would pick this book to read at Halloween to K. Being as it deals with Frankenfly being within the story. NO IT IS NOT SCARY.
It is dark night and Buzz and Fly Guy make costumes together which I think it is pretty interesting to see what Fly Guy came up with. Quite funny to see the "scary" dream that Buzz ends up having that has to deal with Fly Guy.

Not only is this a good read, it is good for those that can read or maybe trying to read. There are not a lot of words on the pages so it should discourage the kiddos from trying to read this book themselves. The pictures are great to look at and funny to see Buzz's face when he meets Frankenfly.
