Old Black Fly

by Jim Aylesworth
illustrated by Stephen Gammell

Join an 'old black fly' on a high energy, funny, and  rhythmic romp through the alphabet. This chaotic little fly "ate on the crust of the Apple pie./ He bothered the Baby and made her cry..."  And on it goes. Gammell's funny illustrations are alive with movement and splashed with color.

School Library Journal ended it's review by saying that this is a book "to be enjoyed at home as a lapbook, to be read aloud with relish at story times, to be chanted again and again and again!"
