Read full description of the books:

So, this review will be special since the majority of this book is told through rhyming. So I will give out my thoughts on this book in a simple rhyming scheme!

Old Black Fly’s been buzzing around,
Buzzing around, buzzing around.
Old Black Fly’s been buzzing around,
And he’s had a very busy bad day.

He buzzed through the pie crust and bothered the baby,
He also bothered the dog and got in the honey,
He bothered the older sister and he bothered the cat,
Is he going to get it, well imagine that!

I really enjoyed this picture book,
It is definitely worth taking a look.
Jim Aylesworth’s writing is witty and fun,
You will learn the alphabet once you are done.
The story is told through the alphabet,
Of the fly’s escapades, you can bet!
Imagine being bothered by a pesky fly,
Why I could just really up and die!
Stephen Gammell’s artwork is simply creative and messy,
The images of the fly flying through everything, oh bless me!
I loved the messy streak that the fly leaves behind,
In his chaotic rampage through the house that puts you in a bind!
The characters look so crazy, it is insane!
The colorings of the artwork will flow in your brain!

So go and pick up “Old Black Fly,”
It is truly fantastic, I will not lie!
If you are a fan of the weird and crazy,
Then this book is right up your alley!
Recommended for children ages three and up,
This book is harmless as a little pup!

Read information about the author

Ebook Old Black Fly read Online! Jim Aylesworth was born in Jacksonville, Florida but as an infant moved from the state. He lived in many places during his childhood: Alabama, Indiana, Georgia, Tennessee, Texas... but by the time Aylesworth was 15 his family had settled in Hinsdale, Illinois and that is where he graduated from high school in 1961.

In 1965, he graduated from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio with a B.A. in English. He returned to Hinsdale and began a career as a stockbroker. By 1970, however, Aylesworth was thinking about what he really wanted to do. After a series of assignments as a substitute teacher, Aylesworth ended up in a primary classroom. He began teaching first grade students in Oak Park, Illinois in 1971 and entered Concordia College in River Forest, Illinois, to earn a graduate degree in elementary education -- a goal he reached in 1978.

But it was his work with children that brought him the most reward. It was Aylesworth's experiences as a teacher that eventually led him to writing children's books.
