School Library Journal - 07/01/2017 PreS-Gr 2—This is the 17th book in the series, and neither Fly Guy nor Buzz has lost his charm. When Buzz learns that Fly Guy is missing his family, he plans a surprise reunion to cheer up his friend. He puts out posters around the local trash cans to advertise the party, and when all 500 relatives show up, Buzz dumps a giant pile of garbage in the yard (adults will be happy to know that Buzz cleans up all the garbage in the end). Humorous touches including Fly Guy greeting various relatives with exclamations of "Cuz!" and "Bruzzer!" make this story a fun read. The comic artwork continues in the "Fly Guy" tradition, and there are various puns and comedic scenes, such as the family playing in the garbage, making this a silly and lighthearted tale. VERDICT Purchase where this series is popular.—V.
