About the Book
Has a fly ever bothered you? Would it keep coming back when you tried to wave it away? This family has the same problem. There is a pesky fly in their house driving everyone crazy. Find out what that buzz-buzz-buzzing fly is up to. What will happen next? Where will the pesky fly appear? Follow along with the fly’s adventure. The Pesky Fly, with its repetitive text and humor, will almost certainly be one that young children will want to listen to over and over again. Kids will begin to repeat the refrain after only a few pages and will be able to read the book on their own in no time. The adorable illustrations help to tell the story and reflect how the characters feel about that pesky fly.

 

Reviews
It is a delightful story that children will love to have read to them, especially when they can jump in on hollering at the pesky fly. This book would be perfect for classrooms and for family fun times.
- Dawn Weaver for Readers' Favorite
There is nothing like the summer heat to bring out all of the pesky flies. Author Vance Durrington and illustrator Melissa Bailey take this irksome theme and turn it into a playfully enjoyable picture book that will be appreciated by young listeners as well as newly independent readers.
