A boy, named buzz, and a fly met and so Buzz caught the fly to bring home as a pet. His father told him that flies are not pets, they're pests! However, when the father realized the fly was smart, they decided to give the fly a name and keep him. They named him Fly Guy. Buzz was so amazed of the fly that he took Fly Guy to a pet show and won an award! They were friends forever.

Cute and clever book to read with children. This book could be fun to read and discuss the different kinds of pets the students may have. It provides children to understand how to keep an open mind with what animal you have as a pet.

This is a fun book that points out that even if people are telling you something ('that pest couldn't possibly be a pet') if you know if your heart that they are wrong then you should just do you. Buzz shows everyone that a 'pet' is in the eye of the beholder.

Kindergarten-Grade 2–A boy goes out searching for a smart animal to take to The Amazing Pet Show and bumps into a fly that is intelligent enough to say the childs name, Buzz. Although his parents and the judges feel at first that a fly is only a pest, not a pet, the insect puts on a performance that astounds them all and wins an award. The cartoon illustrations showing characters with exaggerated wide eyes are delightful, but the text is somewhat weak and disjointed.–Anne Knickerbocker, formerly at Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX
