Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for HI! FLY GUY
"Readers drawn by the flashy foil cover will stick around to applaud this unusually capable critter." --PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

Praise for FLY HIGH, FLY GUY!
"A shoo-in for kids who prefer their beginning readers funny and action-packed." --KIRKUS REVIEWS

Praise for RIDE, FLY GUY, RIDE!
"Clear type, bright white space, and careful word choice make this a must-read for children ready for books a little more challenging than Elephant and Piggie." --KIRKUS REVIEWS

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)

    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.
