Book
Nothing drives a family crazy faster than an old black fly on a hot summer day, especially when the family's a little crazy already. And this fly is as bad as they come. He knows every low-down trick in the book--and won't rest until he's gone through them all.

He ate on the crust
of the Apple pie.
He bothered the Baby
and made her cry.
Shoo fly!
Shoo fly!
Shooo.

"Aylesworth’s buoyant, rhythmic verse provides inspiration for a wondrous evolution of Gammell’s style.... Sheer delight for eyes, ears, and funny-bones."
