About this title

Synopsis:

Fascinating facts, essential information, engaging activities, and full-color photographs and illustrations take readers inside the world of the common house fly, examining its dirty habits and its astonishing abilities.

Review:

"Dixon has been a museum guide, and her chatty, informative title, illustrated with many clear color photos and diagrams, will hook readers with its fascinating view of a fly's 'creepy cool world'."
-- "Booklist"

"Facts and visuals are well laid out with plenty of color and bold headings. . . The book is fact-packed and informative and meets its objective. Kids looking for easy to access information will find it appealing. It appears to be the second title in a series ("Focus on Flies, Lowdown on Earthworms"). Hopefully more will follow.
Highly Recommended."
