Diary of a Fly
Publication Date: August 21, 2007
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.
Doreen Cronin is the New York Times bestselling author of picture books such as Rescue Bunnies, the Diary of . . . series, and Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type, a Caldecott Honor Book. She also wrote The Trouble with Chickens, the first book in the J.J. Tully Mystery series. When she was growing up, Doreens dogs were Archie and Trapper (after two of her favorite television characters). She lives in Brooklyn, New York.
“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.”

“The attention to detail (flies sitting on thumbtack seats at a toothpaste-box table in the cafeteria, Fly in her time-out is just glowing eyes on a two-page black spread) and a lively layout that has a comic-book vibe are sure to appeal. Hilarious.”
