Overview


A hilarious new Fly Guy adventure -- when Fly Guy joins Buzz's class on a trip to a flyswatter factory, it's the "best field trip ever!"

When Fly Guy goes to school with Buzz, they learn that his class is taking a field trip to a flyswatter factory! BAD NEWZZ! Fly Guy tries to hide in Buzz's pocket, but when the tour guide starts insulting flies, Buzz cannot help but stick his head out. A robotic flyswatter named the Super Swatter detects Fly Guy, and Fly Guy causes a hilarious ruckus in his efforts to escape.

At the end of this zany adventure, the flyswatter factory announces an end to its factory tours and the students use their free flyswatters as art to celebrate the "best field trip ever!"

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 Super Fly Guy
"A fly by delight." -Booklist

Praise for Fly High, Fly Guy!
"A shoo-in for kids who prefer their beginning readers funny and action-packed." -Kirkus Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—This 10th addition to the early-reader series is sure to be a hit with young patrons, especially those who have enjoyed the silly adventures of Buzz and his pet. In this tale, Fly Guy is eating a hearty breakfast from Buzz's leftover lunch inside the boy's backpack. Buzz discovers his pal when he opens his backpack at school, and he puts him in his shirt pocket for the day. The irony of this adventure is that the class is headed on a field trip to a flyswatter factory, and the antics that follow will keep youngsters turning the pages. Clear, comic-style drawings, well-balanced white space, and whimsically wide-eyed characters provide beginning readers with a rollicking adventure. This is another winner, especially when searching for books for boys; definitely put this one on your shelves.—Melissa Smith, Royal Oak Public Library, MI
