Reading age 8+, interest age 9+. The bestselling creator of Mr Gum turns his hand to a wildly fanciful story about a boy with a very unusual power; he can turn himself into a fly. Matthew Buzzington’s adventures including getting locked into school and dealing with the big robber and the little robber. And dealing with becoming a fly. With a reading age of 8+ but an interest age of 9-12, this novel can be enjoyed by the struggling or reluctant reader just as much as by an avid 8 year old reader.

Hilarious story with trademark Stanton-esque nonsense. Matthew Buzzington has a superpower - he can turn into a fly! It's just that it hasn't happened yet, which is pretty bad timing really because there are robbers and flying pineapples out to get him. Can he make his superpower work? A fun, chunky format including stickers.
Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 7+
