Focuses on the common housefly and its fondness for all things revolting. The autho takes obvious joy in detailing the housefly's typical meals, which include such savoury delights as garbage-juice soup, dirty diapers, and 'doggie doo'. The Muscidae family (to which the housefly belongs) is depicted with Mom, Dad, a younger sibling, and a slouchy adolescent fly. Includes graphic illustrations and fact-filled text that traces its extensive history as well as its habitats, anatomy, and behaviors.

This book was short but nice. I liked the pictures and it was funny but it was a little simplistic for me.

This book was okay I guess I just think maybe it could have used more expressive language. But over all it was a good book.

I love this book! I love how the information was bold and easy to understand and read. I also loved the silly and funny illustrations that help us learn in a fun way! This book gave a lot of little fun facts like there are more than 100,000 species of flies. Who knew? This book was super fun and easy to read!
