Diary of a Fly by Doreen Cronin

The Lovereading4Kids comment

This laugh-out-loud funny book from best-selling author Doreen Cronin, wonderfully illustrated by Harry Bliss, also manages to sneak a few facts in too - a great way to introduce your children to the world of science.


Diary of a Fly by Doreen Cronin

This is the diary...of a fly. A fly who, when she's not landing on your head or swimming in your soup, is trying to escape her 327 brothers and sisters, who are driving her crazy! Even though she's little - just like her best friends, Worm and Spider - Fly wants to be a superhero. And why not? She walks on walls, sees in all directions at once and can already fly!



...will delight young children who have a thirst for adventure while the Harry Bliss illustrations help to bring the story to life.
