Latest Buzz: Buzz Boy and Fly Guy by Tedd Arnold
ONE NIGHT BUZZ SAID, "I MADE A BOOK.
WE ARE SUPER HEROES!"
"HEROZZZZ?" SAID FLY GUY.
After his first venture into romance in his top-selling Fly Guy Meets Fly Girl and his Geisel Award-winning appearance in Hi! Fly Guy (Theodore Seuss Geisel Honor Book (Awards)) wouldn't any talking housefly/pet be feeling invincible?
Well, Tedd Arnold's stars of the beginning reader galaxy are back again in his new Buzz Boy And Fly Guy (Scholastic, 2010), in which the indomitable two become super herozzz whose mission is to reclaim their property and destroy a dragon--or, in Fly Guy's own words ....
"TIME TO TAKE CARE OF BUZZ-NESS!"
It all begins at bedtime, when Buzz the Boy beds down with his best buddy, Fly Guy. But it's not sleepytime yet for the two friends. Buzz pulls out his own graphic novel starring the dynamic duo, in which Buzz shrinks to the size of his pet fly and--SHAZAM! POW! WHAM! Buzz becomes.... BUZZ BOY! Dragons? NO SWEAT!! Pirates? NO PROBLEM!
With this dynamic musca domestica duo on the job, the world is made safe for a boy and his fly, and at last it's time for...beddy bye for Buzz and Fly Guy. It's all good fun in the inimitable Tedd Arnold style, and his ever-popular googly-eyed guy and his fly remain the super heroes of early reading skills. Don't buzz off any time soon, boys!
