PreS-Gr 2—Fly Guy's latest adventure is in picture-book format. While on a picnic at the park, Buzz and Fly Guy watch people playing with their zany pets. It seems everyone has a pet…except Fly Guy. The two friends head to the pet shop but have no luck. They go back to the park and search some more, yet the right pet can't be found. After reexamining the type of pet Fly Guy really needs, they come to an excellent conclusion. This heartwarming story offers broad appeal. The highly demonstrative characters, with their oversize golf ball-like eyes, are pictured in one hilarious scene after another. The amazingly bright, layered watercolors with their colored-pencil "scribbles," outlined in black, offer a new richness to the illustrations not matched in the easy-reader format. This humorous selection is fun to read aloud but is also well designed for new readers. The simple text is well placed on each page, including occasional thought and speech bubbles that are easy to follow. Children who have enjoyed other books about Buzz and Fly Guy will love this one, too.—Gaye Hinchliff, King County Library System, WA
