A tiny little fly pesters an elephant, a hippo and a tiger by turn. Each powerful animal is determined to catch the pesky fly but despite a ‘TRAMP! CRUSH! TRAMP’, a ‘ROLL! SQUASH! ROLL!’ and a ‘SWOOP! SNATCH! SWOOP!’ the fly eludes capture and continues to ‘fly, fly, fly’.
With a rhyming and repeated patterned text and gloriously great big animal illustrations – a fly’s eye view and perspective – in shades of grey, brown, green, orange, pink and black on thick, toned paper, this Rosen/Waldron offering is destined to be repeatedly read and pored over. Furthermore, it has every possible reading lesson embedded painlessly within.
