Young listeners will find themselves greatly entertained by this playfully illustrated guide to the life of a little fly. Harry Bliss, illustrator of this popular "diary" series, entertains with both his voice and his drawings. Bliss captures listeners with his falsetto fly-girl voice, and he has fun to the very last words he reads from the back cover of the book's illustrated captions. Transforming with ease into the wise voice of spider's grandfather or that of the little fly's Aunt Rita, Bliss shows he's a talented performer with a great sense of pace, tone, and comic timing. The audio offers engaging bits of information about flies in addition to a modest story line in which fly-girl learns that the world needs ALL kinds of heroes. J.C.G.
