Product Description:

PreSchool-Grade 3-- A pesky fly turns a household inside out in this rollicking tale. ``He ate on the crust of the A pple pie./He bothered the B aby and made her cry./ Shoo fly! Shoo fly! Shooo." This fly is on an alphabetical rampage through the house, leaving destruction in his wake as he flits from the C ookie to the D og to the E ggs to the F rosting, and so on to a final, satisfying ``Swat!" Aylesworth's funny, rhythmic chant is strong enough to stand alone. Add Gammell's spattery, jumpy illustrations, splashed with colour, alive with movement, line, and humour, and what emerges is a book that's sure to become a classic. To be enjoyed at home as a lapbook, to be read aloud with relish at story times, to be chanted again and again and again! --Gail C. Ross, Baltimore County Public Library

Wow...the illustrations in this book are really different! Does any one like flies? Flys are famous for irritating everyone: we read this book at Kindergarten and sang a couple of well known traditional 'fly' songs to round things off. It was a hit! A fun, quick and entertaining buzz of a book!
