Great beginner reader to appeal to boys.

Another fun story about Buzz and his pet Fly Guy. The books in this series allow young readers to follow along on the silly adventures that these two friends have. The pages are easy to read due to the simple word choice and predictability of the story line you can count on. In this adventure, Fly Guy learns some new tricks but shows them at the wrong time. So they come up with a secret word so he will know the appropriate time to show off his tricks. A bully unknowingly says the secret word to get Fly Guy to do his tricks and the bully gets a taste of his own medicine! ( )

Review: This main message of this book is to listen. The importance of listening is when Fly Guy shows off his magic tricks at dinner even after Buzz tells him to stop his tricks. Fly Guy did his backstroke in Buzzs' mom's milk and then made Buzzs' dad fall when he flew around him. Fly Guy created too much mayhem from not listening. Thus, I think the importance of listening to others was highlighted during this scene. It was also shown when Fly Guy did listen because he only did his tricks when the word "now" was said and that helped Buzz escape from a bully situation. Therefore, I think this book can show children what could happen when they do listen and what could be a result if they do not listen.

Summary: In this chapter book, Buzz and Fly Guy show off the tricks that Fly Guy has learned. Although Buzz's friends find Fly Guys tricks entertaining, Buzz's parents do not. Fly Guy's tricks causes a discrepancy during dinner and Buzz realizes that these may not be the best idea to do around certain people. However, Fly Guy's tricks come in handy when they help Buzz escape from a bully and in return for Fly Guy helping Buzz out, Buzz teaches Fly Guy how to high-five. ( )

Get ready for Fly Guy's wacky new tricks as he saves the day!

In the latest installment of Tedd Arnold's NEW YORK TIMES bestselling Fly Guy series, Fly Guy puts on a show with all the new tricks that Buzz taught him. But when Fly Guy shows off The Backstroke, The Dizzy Doozie, and The Big Booger at dinner-time, Buzz tells Fly Guy only to do the tricks on command. The tricks come in handy when an annoying kid starts picking on Buzz and Fly Guy--and by the time Fly Guy pulls off The Big Booger, he runs away.

Even reluctant readers will enjoy this fun, zany story about Fly Guy's exciting new tricks and how they end up helping Buzz and Fly Guy.
