Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2—In this easy reader, Buzz asks permission to take Fly Guy on their family vacation, and Mom says, "He's too little…. He might get lost." But the illustration shows Dad closing the trunk with the pet inside, so Fly Guy accompanies them to the beach, art museum, and amusement park. Short chapters state the day's itinerary: "They drove to the beach." Activity is depicted in wonderful wordless illustrations, such as Fly Guy riding a wave in a clam shell, kissing a Mona Lisa look-alike at the museum, and helping to lead the way home. Arnold masterfully infuses funny, expressive cartoon illustrations with actions that further the plot, minimizing the burden of decoding for emerging readers and maximizing their ability to engage in a fun and satisfying story.—Laura Scott, Farmington Community Library, MI

From Booklist

Although Buzz’s parents are initially resistant to him taking his insect pet along on vacation, Fly Guy joins the family as they drive to the beach, the museum, and the fun park. When they get lost on the homeward trip, Buzz sends Fly Guy aloft to study the landscape and save the day. The story offers built-in breaks for beginning readers by inviting them to search for Fly Guy in the pictures. Everything about the artwork spells fun, from the cartoonlike pencil drawings of googly-eyed characters to the circus-bright watercolor washes. Another winner in the amusing 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 daughter (age 7) is never "keen" to read books. When she told me she liked the "Fly Guy" books she read in class - I went and bought the series! There are 5 books, total. The stories are silly and have a fun "gross" factor that most kids would enjoy. The books have a few chapters, but they are easy readers and so it allows the kids to have a sense of accomplishment (having read a "Chapter" book), while not being too labor-intensive. I would definitely recommend them for kids that need to be "encouraged" to read.

I had the hardest time with my middle child and her learning and wanting to read. I stumbled upon the fly guy books and she absolutely loved the stinky fly stories. We have all of them now and she is one of the strongest readers in her class. She is reading above the books levels, but she still loves them so much. My youngest (age 5) daughter has started reading them too and loves them just as much!

We picked this book up from K's school library.

Buzz and his family are going on a trip and Fly Guy is not suppose to come. The family gets to see all sorts of different things, but when they get lost who is there to save the day? That would be Fly Guy. This is an easy reader for those that are learning to read, not a lot of words per page. The illustrations are perfect and go with the story.

This series is excellent for emerging readers. The story is fun and interesting, the illustrations are funny and compelling, and 6-8 year olds can actually manage reading their first "chapter" book!

My son is in 1st grade and loves these books. He has struggled with wanting to read so finding these books was amazing. He reads them to his little sister or on his own or to me. The pictures are so bright and fun and the reading is fun too.
