Fly Guy #1: Hi! Fly Guy

Fly Guy #1: Hi! Fly Guy

Series: Fly Guy (Book #1)
by Tedd Arnold Illustrated by Tedd Arnold
Some kids have dogs and some kids have cats, but Buzz has a pet fly! In this first book of the hilarious series, Buzz enters his winged buddy in the Amazing Pet Competition. The judges scoff until they see all the extraordinary tricks the little fly can do.
Series Information: Eye-popping illustrations bring incredible (and slightly gross) humor to this imaginative series about a boy and his beloved pet fly. Buzz and Fly Guy have the perfect friendship: They're loyal, curious, and adventurous. Fly Guy can even say Buzz's name! Whether it's a football game, a school lunch, or a road trip, there's no stopping this duo. And isn't that what friendship's all about? With simple text and entertaining stories, these readers keep kids coming back for more.
