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

Children's Literature - Kathie M. Josephs
A pet fly is called Fly Guy and the boy who owns the fly is called Buzz. What could be better than having an exciting beginner's chapter book with each chapter having five to ten pages? This is the story of a little boy and his pet fly going on a ride in his father's car. During the ride the pet fly gets blown out of the window into a truck driver's mouth. How gross is that? He then lands in a boat and almost becomes fish bait. From there he jumps onto a circus train. The story takes the reader on the fly's adventures and shows how the little boy gets him back. Little ones will laugh and laugh at the different situations the fly gets into. It is a true friendship between the boy and this fly. This is a great read-a-loud for a young child who wants to listen to a chapter book. The illustrations add much to the excitement and interest. This book would make a great present, or could be used to "hook" a child into learning to read. It is perfect for both boys and girls and will become a favorite of both. Reviewer: Kathie M. Josephs
Kirkus Reviews
A ride in the car has never been scarier—or this much fun When Buzz (the boy) and Fly Guy (the fly, naturally) decide to go for a ride with Dad, things get exciting for the littlest member of the family. The seatbelt proves a poor restraint for the insect, and he is whisked out the window and into a passing truck driver's mouth and out the window again ("PTOOIE!"). All this happens in the first 12 pages! Arnold's enormous-eyed humans mimic Fly Guy's ping-pong-ball eyes, showing dramatic changes from joy to fear to sadness. (Buzz's leaking half-staff eyes when Fly Guy is lost in space will make any reader pause in empathy.) This newest installment moves with the speed of Fly Guy's temporary vehicles: car, truck, boat, train, plane, rocket and, finally, bicycle. Using a variety of page designs to keep up with Fly Guy, Arnold is careful to make sure the young readers know where to look next. Some panels span the gutter, while others change perspective suddenly to mirror the action. 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. Keep flying, Fly Guy! (Early reader. 4-8)
