There’s never a dull moment in this funny, beautifully illustrated tale depicting a pesky fly in a whole new light.

The housefly in this story doesn’t understand why people won’t share their food with him or play with him . . . and why do they keep trying to give him a swat? He’s not doing any harm! In a clever, interactive novelty book buzzing with fun, Petr Horácek may make readers reluctant to turn the final page.Horácek's fly's-eye view of a misunderstood insect's life will be a nifty read at storytime or one-on-one ... it's definitely buzz-worthy.
—Kirkus Reviews

Cleverly cut-out swatters make this an interactive book of a different sort. In the end, the reader has a moral decision of her own—to close the book and squash the fly or to carefully read it again. I would read it again.
—BookPage

Pair this with Lydia Monks’s Aaaarrgghh! Spider! (HMH, 2004) for a fun-filled storytime about sympathetic creepy crawlies.
—School Library Journal

The fly’s- eye vantage point is deftly conveyed, particularly the topsy-turvy scene in which the fly addresses viewers from the ceiling, while the boy seems suspended from the floor...This Hobson’s choice will undoubtedly delight more sanguinary readers.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Several pages feature die-cut fly swatters which, when combined with other clever elements of perspective and tone, make this book highly interactive and entertaining.
