In SWAT! just-hatched housefly Buzzter gets instructions from Professor Halfbottle on how to survive the dangers in life, like being eaten by various animals and plants or killed by humans. This book is scientifically accurate and as it is about poo, flies and death, even boys will surely love to read it.

Reviews

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
