The Fly

By Petr Horacek
Illustrated by Petr Horacek

Hello! It's me – the house fly. Open my book and take a look inside. There's never a dull moment.

The Fly doesn’t understand why people won’t share their food with him, or play with him … and why do they keep trying to swat him? He’s not doing any harm. Be careful not to swat the Fly yourself when you close the book in this fun and buzzing novelty book from Petr Horacek.

  • "Painted, textured collage mixed with large crayoned speech bubbles makes for fun interactive reading." Irish Times
  • "The very real fear of the fly-swat is made tangible through a neat but deadly flap and the fly s final plea as the book closes is an excellent joke to end on." Julie Eccleshare, Guardian
