Fly Guy and the Frankenfly

Series: Hombre Mosca (Book #13)
by Tedd Arnold Illustrated by Tedd Arnold

Buzz dreams about Frankenfly — but Fly Guy is a friend, not a monster!

In the latest installment of the New York Times bestselling Fly Guy series, Buzz and Fly Guy spend a day together playing some spooky games and doing arts and crafts projects. When Buzz goes to bed, Fly Guy stays awake and is "bizzie"! Buzz has a nightmare that a gigantic Frankenfly monster is out to get him! But when he wakes up, all he sees is Fly Guy, who fell asleep making posters showing that he and Buzz are best friends.

The wacky dream scene involving Frankenfly is fun and hilarious, not scary. Buzz awakens to a sweet message of friendship that is nothing to be afraid of.
