Full Text Reviews:

School Library Journal - 03/01/2006 K-Gr 2-In this easy chapter book, Buzz's pet fly attends school with him. When the lunch lady allows the insect to live in the lunchroom, she is fired. Fly Guy is subsequently banned from the room by her replacement, who is a terrible cook. Finally, Buzz comes up with a plan, Roz is reinstated, and Fly Guy gets to stay in the lunchroom. The writing is fast paced, the plot is interesting, and many of the humorous and mildly "gross" details will appeal to children. The cartoon illustrations are funny and action-packed and the layout is appropriate for beginning readers, with one or two sentences per page. The text has suitable repetitive phrases to aid the developing fluency of students beginning to read independently. It could also serve slightly older reluctant and struggling readers.-Bobbee Pennington, Bryan Public Library, TX Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information. - Copyright 2006 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.

Booklist - 04/01/2006 K-Gr. 3. There's definitely a buzz in the school lunchroom. It's Fly Guy, Buzz's pet fly. Fly Guy loves the dirty dishes, the smelly mop, and the garbage cans. When he meets Roz, the lunch lady, she pronounces, No flies in the lunchroom! Then Fly Guy endears himself to her by saying her name, Rozzz, and she feeds him treats (fish heads in sour milk). Sadly, Roz is fired after her boss demands a fly-free lunchroom. She is replaced by Miss Muzzle, who burns the peas and turnips. Everyone misses Roz, and Buzz makes a plan. After Fly Guy boinks Miss Muzzle on the nose, she tries to swat him and makes such a mess that she is fired, and Roz returns. Arnold's golf ball-eyed kids and fly are amusingly and comically exaggerated. Together with the zippy metallic cover and simple text, divided into three short chapters, this book is a delight. - Copyright 2006 Booklist.
