Children's Literature - Beverley Fahey
He's back! On a dark and stormy night, Buzz made a monster puzzle, a costume and a drawing for his best pal, Fly Guy. While Buzz sleeps, Fly Guy gets busy making a monster of his own. Fly Guy turns the power on and the monster awakes, lumbering over to the bed of a now screaming Buzz. Fly Guy turns the power off and Buzz is saved in the nick of time. Really? It turns out that it was all a nightmare, and Fly Guy's only creation is a portrait of himself and his best friend, Buzz. If you have beginning readers who cannot get enough of Fly Guy, then this will be a welcome treat. The scary nightmare is full of charm and wit and will elicit more giggles than goose bumps. Three short chapters divide the tale, and the large font will make for easy reading. Ted Arnold's signature drawings create a suitable mood for a frightening dream and the monster's day-glo green is deliciously creepy. Part of the "Fly Guy" series. Reviewer: Beverley Fahey
Kirkus Reviews
"It was a dark and stormy night" as series fans find Fly Guy and Buzz hard at work in their 13th adventure. Buzz and his insect buddy are playing. After an evening of making puzzles, trying on creepy costumes and admiring a drawing Buzz created featuring them both in their frighteningly fun garb, Buzz's eyes get heavy and he climbs into bed. But Fly Guy is up to something--he is "BIZZY!" Buzz drops off into dreamland…or does he? A couple of page turns reveal Fly Guy on the verge of bringing a gigantic monster to life. A flip of an electrical switch sets the nightmare in motion. "Buzz cried, ‘It's Frankenfly!' " The enormous, green creature responds to Buzz's shout and shambles over to him. No surprise that Fly Guy comes to Buzz's rescue just as the monster, more silly than menacing, picks him up. Morning comes with a fall out of bed to reveal the result of the project Fly Guy was determined to finish the previous night. Giggles and grape juice bring this latest installment to a satisfying close. All the while, Arnold's deftly drawn cartoon expressions comically show the range of emotions as Buzz and Fly Guy experience fear, shock, bewilderment, determination and pride. The theme of friendship and loyalty endures in this enjoyable mock-horror tale for new readers. (Easy reader. 5-7)
