Fly Guy and the Frankenfly
By Tedd Arnold
New York, N.Y. : Cartwheel Books, 2013, Age 7-11
This story is about a boy named buzz who becomes friends with a fly named Fly Guy. Buzz has a dream that Fly Guy creates a monster named "Frankenfly" but will it become a reality?
The author uses a very simplistic writing style that would be great for kids anywhere from second to fifth graders. It also incorporates chapters in it as well.
The illustrations in this story are all drawn by hand. They are cartoon drawings but really go along with the book. The illustrations that I thought were most effective was the one when his is shown falling asleep and dreaming.
I thought that this story was very interesting. It was a very simple story but written very well. I would recommend this story to kids that are just starting to read chapter books.
