Meet the fly

The Fly
by Elise Gravel

The Fly is a nonfiction book presented as a short graphic novel. The drawings give human personalities to the common house fly, while the text provides interesting facts about them. That most of these facts are disgusting add to the appeal.

Focus on Flies
by Norma Dixon

Dixon's book would make a good companion to Gravel's little book. Focus on Flies provides more information about fly behaviour, fly anatomy, and fly locomotion. It even has a few facts about mosquitoes. The realistic drawings and photos are attractive too.
