Description

A fly enters a concert hall and causes a commotion among the audience and performers alike in this 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, flyswatter 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.
