Über den Autor

Born in Elmira, New York, Tedd grew up in a family of six with three brothers. His family lived on a farm in Pennsylvania for several years then returned to Elmira until Tedd was ten years old. His father's work then required that they move to Gainesville, Florida. There, Tedd's first art lessons in an abandoned dentist's office over the Happy Hour pool hall eventually led to a fine arts degree from the University of Florida. He and his wife, Carol, started their family in Tallahassee where Tedd worked as a commercial illustrator. Carol, a Kindergarten teacher, drew Tedd's attention to children's books. Their first son, Walter, inspired his breakthrough picture book, No Jumping on the Bed!. His second son, William, now stars in No More Water in the Tub!, a sequel to his first book. He has now published more than 30 books as author and illustrator. When not working on his books, Tedd's interests include tennis, sketching, reading, coin collecting, and the computer. "The inspiration to begin writing and illustrating for children came from my wife, Carol. As a kindergarten teacher, she collected picture books. I was attracted to their colorful pages and the way the words and pictures played with each other, much like the captioned cartoons I had drawn when I was young. "Perhaps the biggest surprise of my career as an author is that I'm now going back to elementary school! Visiting young readers in classrooms and libraries is something I love. Kids keep me on my toes and they ask a lot of questions. The number one question seems to be, 'Where do you get your ideas?' It's also the hardest question to answer because every idea is different. Some ideas seem to pop out of thin air -- while I'm in the shower or walking the dog. Others come from reading or research. But most of my ideas come from my family and the things they do and say. "For instance, one time when my first son, Walter, was five years old, I found him lying on the couch, looking pale as a ghost and clutching a Bible to his chest. He was praying! When I asked what was wrong, he wouldn't answer. In fact, he wouldn't even open his mouth. My wife, Carol, finally coaxed a response from him: he pointed inside his mouth. Carol exclaimed, 'You have a loose tooth!' Walter's eyes nearly popped out with fright. We quickly assured him that it was perfectly okay for his tooth to come loose and that a new one would replace it. But Carol and I looked at each other and realized that despite all our efforts to be good parents, we had somehow completely forgotten to warn Walter that teeth fall out! He had thought he was falling apart! I made a little note in my journal; then ten years later, I expanded that memory into my book Parts." Tedd Arnold lives in Elmira, New York, with his wife, Carol, two sons, Walter and William, two cats, Cody and Frankie, and one dog, Hershey. copyright ? 2000 by Penguin Putnam Books for Young Readers.

    "Hi Fly Guy" is a fantasy book that follows a fly and a boy becoming friends. At the start of the book, the fly is hungry and in search of food, while the boy is pet-less and searching for a pet! The two run into one another, and the little boy decided to keep the fly as his pet. However, the fly did not want to be anyone's pet so "he stomped his food and said - BUZZ" which just so happened to be the little boy's name. When the two arrive back at Buzz's house, his parents are a bit upset that he wanted to keep a pesky fly as his per so they try to squash him... But the fly exclaimed, "BUZZ!" So they let him keep the fly that Buzz named "Fly Guy." The two went to "The Amazing Pet Show" together and proved to the judges that a fly can be a pet. In the end, Fly Guy won the smartest pet award and the two became friends.

    How can you not love Tedd Arnold and Fly Guy? I like the simple dialog and the easy to understand storylines. I suggest this book for early readers because it is the same size as a chapter book. This books looks less like a picture book, and is more appealing to older non-experienced readers. A reader who is not confident can gain confidence in reading any of the Fly Guy books. The words are easy to read and fun. I would use this book as a group lesson, where several students had their own copy of the book. They would be expected to read it alone first, then we would read it as a group. Finally, we would discuss the story and answer and ask questions of the story. Then we could continue with other stories written by Tedd Arnold.

    Summary- Buzz runs into a fly. They become friends. Buzz keeps the fly and names him Fly Guy. Fly Guy enters a pet contest and wins the smartest pet award. Strength- Facial Expressions of Characters Both the fly and the boy have priceless facial expressions on each page that keep the reader engaged with a smile on his/her face. Use with Kids- This would be a great first "chapter book" to read with a new reader. It is broken down into 3 page chapters. The book has a meaningful plot and engaging pictures.

    Hi Fly Guy tells of a fly who was out looking for something to eat. At the same time, a boy was out searching for a pet for The Amazing Pet Show. All of a sudden, they collided! The boy was excited because he thought he had found a pet, but the fly was furious and wanted out. Everytime the fly would yell BUZZ, the boy would get excited because that was his name! Not only had he found a pet, he had found the smartest pet. When he takes the fly home, his parents try to kill the fly because it is a pest, not a pet. But the boys saves the fly and takes care of him until the pet show. The judges at the pet show laugh at him, saying a fly can't be a pet. The fly gets mad and starts doing tricks. The boy wins the contest and they become best friends.I thought this was a pretty cute book. I thought the story was silly and the pictures were cute. These two things make a great combination for young readers. I don't know that I would use this in my calssroom for any particular lesson, but I would use it as a quick read for transition time.

    Very cute story about a boy who is looking for an interesting large animal to show-off at the Amazing Pet Show and instead ends up with a fly, a smart fly because it can say the boy's name, Buzz. I love the illustrations of Tedd Arnold. A funny boy loved by kids of all ages.

    The simple language in this text does is used so well and in such funny ways that young readers will quickly become engaged and invested in reading this book. Fly Guy is adorable and the idea of keeping a fly as a pet is quite funny.

    This is a really fun book for kids to read who are at the beginning stages of reading chapter books. This is part picture book and part chapter book and has a cool cover that is real shiney! This is a great book that also teaches children that you can be friends with even the most unlikely people/creatures/animals/insects/whatever! I also like how it shows kids that they can't always judge a book by its cover and assume that a fly is an unintelligent thing. The art and illustrations are also bright and engaging, which makes the kids want to turn the page and read more.

    Simple, endearing and funny, this book would entertain children of various ages. It celebrates being different and having confidence in one's self. Flashy cover holds added intrigue!

    This simple read aloud is good for younger readers or anyone who has had 'unlikely' friends. Beginning readers can make their way through this picture book that also doubles as a beginning chapter book. The holographic cover is sure to attract even the most reluctant readers, not to mention the interesting story line about two unusual friends. This is a quick read but a good read.

    This book is about a boy named Buzz catches a fly for a pet. He grows fond of the fly and names him Fly Guy. The book is a simple read for beginning readers. A short story about a friendship, and many more adventures to come.

    A cute tale of an unexpected friendship between a super smart fly and a boy, Buzz. This book is great for a reluctant reader because of its unique holographic cover and easy to read text. Its a beginning chapter book as well and teaches some good traits like perseverance, diversity, friendship, personal best, and accepting the unexpected. I could also use this book to teach illustrating skills, expressive simple language, and story writing. A good read for grades 2+

    This represents a Modern Fantasy because it uses a setting and characters that are make-believe. A fly can't really win an award, which is the pretend part of the book. This book does however hold a bit of truth in that real people are present.

    This is a goofy story about a boy to makes a fly his pet and the pet begins to listen to commands and perform tricks. This could be a great resource for realistic fiction writing. Students could see the twist of a simple pet contest and making the twist of having a fly win the contest.

    When Buzz captures a fly to enter in The Amazing Pet Show, his parents and the judges tell him that a fly cannot be a pet, but Fly Guy proves them wrong.

    A vibrant and fast paced silly text is illustrated with wonderfully comical and expressive illustrations. The language incorporates high frequency words and uses repitition without redundancy. A delightful reader that holds audience interest.

    That was amazing.

    I am *so* not the target audience, and so maybe I should not rate this. However, in my opinion, it does not transcend to the universal, and so I think 3 stars is fair. Some kids will adore it, and good on 'em.

    This book is great for boys who are uninterested in reading because it puts a funny twist on a school project. It starts by the boy looking for a perfect pet to win the talent show ant though the fly doesn't seem to be a great pet he is able to say the main characters name which is Buzz. The book goes on to tell about their adventures and how the pet show goes.FantasyUse: 1. To look at fantasy 2. the use of rhyme

    This is a bridge book and it would be good for students to practice reading on their own. I think students will like this because it is ridiculous to have a pet fly and they will think the story is funny.
  • (4/5)
    I really enjoyed reading this book! I liked how even though it was a short book, it was divided into chapters. I think young students would enjoy reading it written like that! The writing flowed well, and it was extremely engaging. The characters were very well developed for such a short book. Although this was a silly story, it had a good main idea and message. The idea the author wanted to convey was to not listen to what others have to say and to believe in yourself.
  • (5/5)
    Clever and enjoyable to read! Simple text and humorous illustrations. I love the idea of a pet fly winning the "smartest pet" award at the Pet Show.

    A fun little book about a boy and his pet fly. The illustrations are charming. Can flies be pets? They sure can, especially when they are as smart as Fly Guy!

    Hi! Fly Guy. Written and illustrated by Tedd Arnold. Scholastic, Inc. 2005. 32 pages. $5.99 hbk. 978-0439853118. Grades K-3. Fly Guy is not just any pet: he can fly to space, pull stunts in midair, and even say his owner’s name – “Buzz!” Though Buzz initially encounters disbelief (first from his parents, and then from the judges of the Amazing Pet Show), everyone is wowed over once Fly Guy shows off his skills. New readers will enjoy this light, silly tale (the first in the Fly Guy series) that eases them into the experience of reading on their own, thanks to large text, clear wording and colorful, cartoonish illustrations. As a bonus, the psychedelic silver cover is sure to catch any young reader’s eye!

    A cute catchy story with “chapters” that will appeal to newer readers. A story about friendship between a fly and a boy and their determination to prove themselves. The illustrations were funny too.
