One of the world’s greatest cartoonists, Lewis Trondheim, tells the exciting life story of a common housefly. From the fly’s birth to his inevitable end, we see everything this creature goes through simply to survive… from the fly’s perspective. We guarantee you’ve never looked at your kitchen the way the fly does. While there’s plenty of humor, there’s thrills and chills as well, especially when the fly meets a spider. You may never have liked flies before, but once you meet this little guy, you may be surprised how much you can like a fly.

"Befitting his subject, the creator messes with perspective, illustrating scenes from all angles while providing wordless emotional narration by Fly’s expressive bug-eyes. With the nonstop action unfolding incrementally, each nine-panel page has the cinematic feel of an animation storyboard."
— Publishers Weekly

"If the last few pages hurtle past like sketchy afterthoughts, this introduction to an insect innocent—who has been entertaining audiences overseas and online since 1995 both in comics form and in a long series of short films—will beguile young readers on this side of the Atlantic as well."
— Kirkus Reviews

"Despite its small stature, this surprisingly winsome insect will captivate graphic novel lovers and those looking for a sophisticated visual narrative."
— Claire Moore, Manhattan Beach Lib., CA
