About the Book

A fly enters a concert hall and causes a commotion among audience and performers alike in this laugh-out-loud-funny and easy-to-read picture book.

In the wake of a fly's flight, a wig flips, eyeglasses fall, and a lollipop is launched. Musicians BANG and BOOM as they try to get that fly! All fail, and the chaos culminates when an overzealous singer, fly-swatter in hand, leaps off the stage. The audience applauds enthusiastically for the greatest display of showmanship they have ever seen.

David Catrow pays homage to the slapstick films of the last century with masterfully rendered artwork and an understated text that has a music of its own. He has illustrated many best-selling and highly regarded picture books. This is his first book for Holiday House.

THE REVIEWS ARE IN

"Catrow's outrageously funny caricatures steal the show in this simple story of a fly that wreaks havoc. . . . Repetitive words and extremely short sentences make this tale accessible for the newest readers. . . . Wonderful humor."—School Library Journal
