Every page in it is covered in colourful cartoons and witty words...If you are young, or young at heart, buy this book! --The Bug Club Magazine ... 'Swat, A Fly's Guide to Staying Alive

's actually a factual and informative book all about flies and other fascinating insects! ... With a RRP of just GBP6.99, this paperback book would make a great gift particularly for boys given the insect theme! This gets a very easy 5 out of 5 from us. --Natasha Kolb, What's Good To Do This is a lovely book, beautifully illustrated and packed with interesting information. You are taken on a journey of a house fly and all he experiences in his fight to survive from the dangers and predators that he encounters. This was extremely humorous thoroughly entertaining and educational too. My 8 year old son enjoyed this book very much and I would certainly recommend it. --www.letsgowiththechildren.co.uk
