Super Fly Guy is a story about a young boy, Buzz, and his pet fly, Fly Guy. Fly Guy is the reason for the school's lunch lady, Roz, being fired; so Buzz and Fly Guy come up with a plan to get Roz rehired. Super Fly Guy is a cute and engaging story for begininng readers to read on their own. ( )

Another humorous tale of Buzz and Fly Guy. This time they went to school together, Fly Guy had a blast and got a little spoiled along the way and was helpful to the lunch lady, Miss Roz, and had a new experience to boot. I would use this book to teach illustration, writing skills, expressive language. A reluctant reader would like the holographic cover, familiar characters and easy to read text.

Reason for Reading: Ds read to me as his reader. Over Christmas I will have him reading some short and easy books as his mind is on other things at this time. Plus going back to some easy stuff will boost his confidence.

Our whole family loves Fly Guy! Ds has had some of the books read to him when he was younger, has read a few himself when he was struggling with this stage of reading and now read this one again with almost no problems. He was more interested in the pictures than the words which made it hard to focus on the reading. Fly Guy is hilarious and I recommend these early readers. Buzz has a pet fly who can speak a limited vocabulary. In this story Fly Guy goes to school with Buzz and makes friends with the lunch lady Roz, but Roz gets fired when the Boss finds flies in the kitchen. The new lunch lady, Mizz Muzz(le) is a terrible cook and Fly Guy inadvertently manages to get her fired too which brings the beloved Roz back who was a superb cook. Lots of fun, humorous and even a little gross at times. A wonderful easy reader, especially for boys. ( )

A great beginning reader as the humor engages the reader to keep moving along. The illustrations are delightfully gross, perfect for the young reader as another level of engagement. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0439639042, Hardcover)

The second book in a humorous, easy-to-read series about a boy and his fly! Books have foil covers!

Fly Guy loves the school lunchroom. He loves the dirty dishes, the smelly mop, and the garbage cans. But when the lunch ladies discover there's a fly in the cafeteria, chaos ensues! Though Fly Guy makes a mess of things, he also shows his powers as a Super Fly Guy!

Using hyperbole, puns, slapstick, and silly drawings, bestselling author/illustrator Tedd Arnold creates an easy reader that is full of fun. With an eye-catching holographic foil cover, this is the second in a series of four books.
