School Library Journal - 06/01/2008 K-Gr 2-In this easy reader, Buzz asks permission to take Fly Guy on their family vacation, and Mom says, "He's too little-. He might get lost." But the illustration shows Dad closing the trunk with the pet inside, so Fly Guy accompanies them to the beach, art museum, and amusement park. Short chapters state the day's itinerary: "They drove to the beach." Activity is depicted in wonderful wordless illustrations, such as Fly Guy riding a wave in a clam shell, kissing a Mona Lisa look-alike at the museum, and helping to lead the way home. Arnold masterfully infuses funny, expressive cartoon illustrations with actions that further the plot, minimizing the burden of decoding for emerging readers and maximizing their ability to engage in a fun and satisfying story.-Laura Scott, Farmington Community Library, MI Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information. - Copyright 2008 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.

Booklist - 05/15/2008 Although Buzz’s parents are initially resistant to him taking his insect pet along on vacation, Fly Guy joins the family as they drive to the beach, the museum, and the fun park. When they get lost on the homeward trip, Buzz sends Fly Guy aloft to study the landscape and save the day. The story offers built-in breaks for beginning readers by inviting them to search for Fly Guy in the pictures. Everything about the artwork spells fun, from the cartoonlike pencil drawings of googly-eyed characters to the circus-bright watercolor washes. Another winner in the amusing Fly Guy series. - Copyright 2008 Booklist.
