The Fly

Publisher: Walker Books

Review

House flies: dirty, unhygienic, noisy and a complete nuisance – at least as far as humans are concerned. But who has ever thought to look at life from a fly’s point of view?

This funny and original picture book portrays the fly as a simple creature which enjoys daily exercise and regular meals, loves animals (especially the smelly ones) and is completely bemused by multiple attempts to squash it and chase it out of the house.

Energetic illustrations and some lift-the-flap sections add interest as the humble housefly buzzes through this lively book.
