Summary

This is the diary...of a fly. A fly who, when she's not landing on your head or swimming in your soup, is trying to escape her 327 brothers and sisters who are driving her crazy

Even though she's little -- just like her best friends Worm and Spider -- Fly wants to be a superhero. And why not? She walks on walls, sees in all directions at once, and can already fly

Doreen Cronin and Harry Bliss, the team behind the New York Times bestsellers Diary of a Worm and Diary of a Spider, reach hilarious heights with their story of a little fly who's not afraid to dream big. Really big.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In Diary of a Worm (2003) and Diary of a Spider (2005), Cronin and Bliss make two of nature's least-appealing creatures into perfectly charming journal keepers. Just as likable is their new diarist, a young fly decked out in a fetching red bow, who first appeared in Spider's diary. The hopes, fears, and daily concerns Fly sets down seem worlds away from kids' lives: Will Fly be considered odd at school for her predilection for regurgitated food? What's the best way to deal with her 327 siblings? As one who eats horse manure, has 4,000 lenses in each eye, and can walk on walls, is she better than the superhero she dreams of becoming? Even so, children may well find a certain familiarity in the emotions underlying Fly's words. Bliss' colorful cartoon illustrations are the perfect counterbalance to the humorous irony in Cronin's text. Like its predecessors, this diary is a crowd pleaser.--Enos, Randall Copyright 2007 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Cronin and Bliss follow up their bestselling Diary of a Worm and Diary of a Spider with a heroine so delightful it would be criminal to swat her. Fly, a purple girl with multifaceted green eyes, chronicles her childhood, from anxieties about the first day of school ("June 7: What if I'm the only one who eats regurgitated food?... June 8: Everyone eats regurgitated food!") to family issues ("July 23: I visited my aunt Rita today. She's been trapped on the wrong side of a screen for a week"). Tips on flying, such as "Leap backward when taking off," combine with grade-school concerns and problems of discipline. Fly's babysitter, a ladybug, can't manage Fly and her 327 brothers and sisters ("Mom says we were a lot easier to watch before we grew heads"), so she brings a hungry green frog and sits back to read Teen Bugs magazine. Because flies "beat their wings 200 times per second," "can see in all directions at once" and have amazing aerial powers, Fly fantasizes about being a superhero, though her friend Spider notes, "Superheroes bend steel with their bare hands. You eat horse manure with your feet." Bemused readers may be more inclined to agree with Worm, however, who reassures Fly that "the world needs all kinds of heroes." Cronin's spot-on humor and Bliss's uproarious ink-and-watercolor panels make Fly-and this third outing in the series-both irresistible and undeniably super. Ages 4-8. (Sept.)
