for Fly High, Fly Guy! by Tedd Arnold
When Buzz’s parents decide to take a road trip, Buzz wants to know if Fly Guy, his pet fly, can come along. “He’s too little and might get lost,” his parents advise, so Fly Guy stays home…only to fly out of the trunk at the first destination. No matter where they are—the beach, the amusement park, the museum—his parents are sure that Fly Guy will get lost. But with his superior homing skills (and hiding skills), Fly Guy is never far from Buzz. The tables are turned when Buzz’s parents get lost on the drive home and Fly Guy comes to the rescue. A succinct and smartly written beginning reader about a boy and his fly is pleasantly illustrated with cartoonish art. (Ages 4–7)

The fifth book in an award-winning, easy-to-read series about a boy and his pet fly, each book in the series has a fun foil cover! Mom and Dad won't let Fly Guy go along on the family road trip. They're afraid he'll get lost. But when Dad accidentally shuts him in the trunk, Fly Guy goes along for the ride! First, Fly Guy gets lost at the picnic site--but he shows up in the garbage can. Then he gets lost at the art museum, but he shows up as part of a modern painting. At the beach, he turns up in a shell, and at he amusement park, on Buzz's hot dog (yuck!). Zany illustrations and easy-to-read text make this a fun reading adventure for the beginner. The first book in the Fly Guy series is a Theodor Geisel honor book.
