School Library Journal - 10/01/2010 K-Gr 2—Fly Guy's latest escapade finds him starring in a graphic-novel-style comic written by none other than his very own boy. As the pair settle into bed for the night, Buzz pulls out a book starring two "superherozzzz"—himself and Fly Guy. In Buzz's tale, he wakes to find himself shrunken down to Fly Guy's size, and Fly Guy can talk. The real action starts when he tells the boy that their house has been stolen by pirates and taken to a faraway dragon cave while they slept. Luckily, the pair find a way to befriend the dragon and all ends well. Arnold's trademark cartoon illustrations and easy-to-read text will surely be another hit with the Fly's fans.—Cathie Bashaw Morton, Millbrook Central School District, NY - Copyright 2010 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
Booklist - 09/01/2010 In the latest book from the Fly Guy series, Buzz tells his pet fly that he has made a book, The Amazing Adventures of Buzz Boy and Fly Guy, and offers to read it aloud. The story-within-a-story plot, in which Buzz Boy has “superstrength” and the now human-sized Fly Guy has the power of speech, involves a fire-breathing dragon and pirates. With some minor stylistic changes, the series’ simplified, exaggerated line drawings, rich colors, and gentle, offbeat humor transition easily into Buzz’s comic book. Once again, Arnold refreshes the series with a new idea and a keen sense of how to amuse beginning readers. - Copyright 2010 Booklist.
