The Lovereading4Kids comment
The dramatic and entertaining story of the humble house fly! No one much likes the house fly being in a house. But, as he shows here, he isn’t really doing any harm! Everywhere he goes he is in danger of getting smashed by the fly swot but all he wants is to eat a little and drink a little and, when he’s outside, visit the cows. Is there anything very much wrong with that? An amusing story which introduces the nice side of a house fly! ~ Julia Eccleshare

The Fly by Petr Horacek
Hello! It's me - the house fly. Open my book and take a look inside. There's never a dull moment. The Fly doesn't understand why people won't share their food with him, or play with him...and why do they keep trying to swat him? He's not doing any harm.
Painted, textured collage mixed with large crayoned speech bubbles makes for fun interactive reading. Irish Times
The very real fear of the fly-swat is made tangible through a neat but deadly flap and the fly's final plea as the book closes is an excellent joke to end on. Julie Eccleshare, Guardian
