A simple and cute story of a boy who goes looking for a pet and finds a friend. Great 'chapter' book for those beginning to read. ( )

A creative beginning to a comedic series. ( )

This is a cute book about a boy and his pet fly. The two break stereotypes and become good friends. This is the first of a series of early reader chapter books about Fly Guy and his owner Buzz. I would recommend this book for second through third graders. ( )

This is a beginning level chapter book, a part of the fly guy series. I think this is great for students to have a humorous read about a boy named Buzz who keeps Fly Guy as a pet. The boy and Fly Guy become friends. It is a wholesome read and a great entry level read for chapter book reading. It is a good series to transition to when you want more text. ( )

This is a beginning chapter book about a boy named Buzz and his pet fly Fly Guy. The two of them enter a pet show and Buzz is told that a fly is not a pet. Fly Guy proves himself to be worthy of the title of pet. This is a great introduction to chapter books and makes a good first chapter book. This is appropriate for any child that is ready to transition out of picture books and start reading more complex text. First and second graders would enjoy this series. This is not a read aloud book as it has not educational advantage besides building reading skills. ( )

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
