School Library Journal - 11/01/2008 K-Gr 2-It's football season, and Buzz's team, the Go-Getters, needs one more player. Fly Guy, Buzz's pet fly, tries out but cannot kick the ball, catch a pass, or tackle. The coach fills the spot and, at the big game, the Go-Getters score; then their opponents score-again and again. With only one second left and the new player hurt, Fly Guy is sent onto the field. He and Buzz put their secret plan into action, which involves the nose of the opposing team's quarterback. The pencil and watercolor cartoon illustrations feature exaggerated eyes and great expressions. This easy reader is chock-full of humor.-Linda Staskus, Parma Regional Library, OH Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information. - Copyright 2008 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.

Booklist - 09/01/2008 When Buzz’s football team is short one player before the big game, he offers his loyal pet, Fly Guy. Coach can’t hide his guffaws as the plucky insect tries out, attempting (and failing) to kick the ball, catch it, and tackle a player. Still, Fly Guy wins a seat on the bench, and Buzz makes him a tiny helmet. Together they plan a secret play and a touchdown dance, just in case. The football theme, simple vocabulary, and comical pictures will encourage many beginning readers to give this amusing book a try. Arnold’s cartoon-style drawings and squiggly-line shading make the artwork expressive as well as energetic. From the series that began with Geisel Honor title  Hi! Fly Guy (2005), this will please beginning readers as well as their younger siblings. - Copyright 2008 Booklist.
