"Flies can't play football," says the coach. But Fly Guy and Buzz are determined to prove him wrong. New readers will experience both pride and delight as they read the simple text and look at the funny pictures of Fly Guy trying to kick a football, go out for a pass, and tackle his friend Buzz. In the end Fly Guy scores and gets to do his hilarious touchdown dance.
Hooray for Fly Guy!
It's football season, and Buzz's team, the Go-Getters, needs one more player. Fly Guy, Buzz's pet fly, tries out but cannot kick the ball, catch a pass, or tackle. The coach fills the spot and, at the big game, the Go-Getters score; then their opponents score-again and again. With only one second left and the new player hurt, Fly Guy is sent onto the field. He and Buzz put their secret plan into action, which involves the nose of the opposing team's quarterback. The pencil and watercolor cartoon illustrations feature exaggerated eyes and great expressions. This easy reader is chock-full of humor.-Linda Staskus, Parma Regional Library, OH

My 1st grade son loves the Fly Guy books, and especially loves this football story. He can read most of it by himself. Definitely recommend!
We have all the "Fly Guy" books and we just love them all. They are perfect for a kid who's just starting to read all the way up to reading for fun. These books are fun with a cute story line and a good meaning behind it all <acceptance>. I will deff recommend to any parent and child.
The Fly Guy books are great fun for beginning readers -- especially boys. The series is written as chapter books that early readers can decipher themselves. My son loves the illustrations and thinks the stories are funny. I'm finding that the combination of those two elements holds his interest like few other books right now.
I also really appreciate that the humor in this series is more slap-stick than a lot of the other chapter books created for this age group. Too often I find that the "humor" in these books is created by name-calling and/or characters picking on each other. Sure, name-calling happens in life, but I don't like to promote it in what we read at home.
He's almost 7 and is reading and re-reading the Fly Guy books -- to us and to himself. That, to me, is just about the best recommendation you can give a children's book.
