"My daughter (two and a half) thinks anything poo related…"
My daughter (two and a half) thinks anything poo related is hilarious so loved this story of a fly who is desperate to sleep but keeps getting chased off wherever he lands. Eventually he ends up sleeping on a cow poo - lovely!
Illustrations by Sholto Walker are very good, featuring a sheep who looks suspiciously like Camilla Parker Bowles to me!Read moreLess
"The idea of a fly being the main character and…"
The idea of a fly being the main character and having feelings is normally not something we think of,so it was difficult to convince the kids that it wasn't one of the flies that we try to keep out of the house and away from food etc.
The idea of the story is nice, with the repetitive parts in this, meant the kids remembered what was going to be said. It was written nicely and the pictures were ok.
I imagine if I saw the book in a bookshop I wouldn't pick it up straight away as the picture on the front isn't drawn like the majority of all the other children's books.
The book is nice but would have imagined from the title a bumble bee rather than a fly. Neither of my children 2 & 4 have picked the book up to look through as yet at times other than when I read it to them.
Have a look and see what you think.Read moreLess
