I liked this book. I really liked the playful language choice throughout the story "up, up the staircase it whirred and it whined with all of the monsters galumphing behind. It whizzed out the window. It whooshed to the sky. Bye-bye file pie!" I believe that the word choice adds a sense of uniqueness and charm that enhances the story. I also liked the illustrations throughout the book. The flies’ wings were the only color used in the entire story all of the other pictures were in black and white. This added emphasis to how important the flies were to the monsters. Finally I really liked the plot of this story and how even though the flies flew away the monsters still enjoyed their pie. The main idea of this story is that you should always make the best out of unfortunate situations. ( )

Fantastic typography (Up, UP!) and use of spot color. ( )

Thelonius accidentally ate a fly one day and was amazed at how great it tasted. The monster decided to bake a fly pie and invite all of his friends and relatives over to eat it. The pie flew away with all the flies in it. Eventually the crust fell from the sky and all of the monsters enjoyed it together. Young children would enjoy the silliness of this book. ( )

This is a cute story. This pictures are also unique because they are all black and white and look like very detailed sketching which is fun. The book is also filled with rhymes which is something that students really enjoy.

Good rhyme-scheme, good read-aloud. Monster makes a fly pie then invites his monster friends over to try it-very gross ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375832181, Hardcover)

Thelonius Monster once swallowed a fly, and decided that flies would taste grand in a pie. That silly guy!

Judy Sierra’s funny read-aloud romp presents a monster that children will love as he makes a goo-filled crust, lures hundreds and thousands of succulent flies into it, and invites his “disgusting-ist” friends and relations to a gala fly-pie party. “How it glistens! And listen—it hums!” shout the ravenous monsters. But just as his guests are about to dig in—the pie flies off. “Bye, bye, fly pie.”

Judy Sierra’s story in rhyme begs to be read aloud during Halloween season or any season, and Edward Koren’s signature hairy monsters capture all the humor of this deliciously gross tale.
