Book Review - Shoo, Fly Guy!

Author: Tedd Arnold
Publisher: Scholastic (Sept. 2006)

Ages: 3-7
Rating: 4 Stars

Description from Goodreads:
Fly Guy returns home to discover that Buzz has gone on a picnic without him! Sad and hungry, Fly Guy takes off in search of his favorite food. He gets shooed away from a hamburger, a pizza, a dog's bones, and even roadkill--leaving readers to guess what Fly Guy's favorite oozy, lumpy, smelly, and brown food could possibly be! Why, it's shoo-fly pie, of course!

Using hyperbole, puns, slapstick, and silly drawings, bestselling author/illustrator Tedd Arnold creates an easy reader that is full of fun.

The Fly Guy books by Tedd Arnold are a series of easy to read picture books that all my kids enjoy.

Shoo, Fly Guy! is a fun book to read despite being quite gross! Little boys will love it. There is lots of repetition and it's a quick easy read my kids ask me to read over and over.

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
