What's The Fly About

Publisher Summary

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.
