This is the diary … of a fly.

Even though she’s little—just like her best friends, Worm and Spider—Fly wants to be a superhero. And why not? She walks on walls, sees in all directions at once, and can already fly!

Doreen Cronin and Harry Bliss, the team behind the #1 New York Times bestsellers Diary of a Worm and Diary of a Spider, reach hilarious heights with their story of a little fly who’s not afraid to dream big. Really big.

    " This is such a clever book! It is a fun way to learn about flys and the food chain. "

    " This is great fun and even has some cool facts about flies hidden within the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth | 2/6/2014

    " This one is Zoey's favorite, probably because fly is a girl. Again, fun to read, fun to look at, fun to discover new things that we didn't see in previous readings. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Frank | 1/17/2014

    " Frank liked it. We got this one with the audio CD companion, and Frank seemed to really enjoy the format (listening to it with clues about when to turn the page). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 1/8/2014

    " Diary of a Fly is part of the series, "Diary of a Worm". Fly and worm are friends, and the book contains the diary of the fly. I think this book, because it has many non-fiction aspects about the life of a fly. It can be used in a unit on insects. It discusses the stages of a fly's life and anatomy of their body. It includes humor, but also incorportates learning. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tricia | 1/7/2014

    " Same vein as worm and spider...science plus story with humor create a fun book for preschoolers. "

    " I love fly she's sooo cute! lol "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tiff | 12/4/2013

    " I was prepared to be disappointed when I saw this book, after not loving 'Diary of a Spider'...however, I was pleasantly surprised to find myself laughing out loud! This is just as good as 'Diary of a Worm' and I can't wait to read it with my second graders. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 The Library Lady | 11/19/2013

    " Every one of Cronin's "Diary" books is ROTFL funny, and this one is no exception. Better for elementary school students than preschoolers--teachers, grab these books when you're doing lessons on worms, spiders and flies! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina | 11/5/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura Jones | 12/18/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 April | 8/26/2012

    " Just like the Dairies before it, this one is super funny! I love all the great details in the illustrations. My favorite is the kick me sign on the babysitter lady bug. Great for promoting our buggy Summer Reading Program theme this year. There is a great balance of funny and fly fact. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matthew | 8/26/2012

    " Clever and funny with just a hint of information to keep it educationally valuable. Good diary text. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lena Barnes | 7/23/2012

    " I love these series! This book is from the perspective of a fly in his diary. He starts school and does a science observation on a human, makes an "About me" book, and worries about fitting in. Students loved this book and were cracking up during the read aloud. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cameron Cox | 6/18/2012

    " This is a great book because its funny and short and also because it shows what a fly likes to do and also because when I was a little kid I loved this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 4/11/2012

    " Popular series featuring Fly, Spider, and Worm, a trio of friends; often funny, in the silly/gross vein of humor; about as cute as insects can be. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 3/14/2012

    " This is the third "Diary of..." books by Diane Cronin. Our favorite is still i>Diary of a Worm. All three cleverly have the writer explain their days. We learn a little about the anatomy of a fly and how they live but it's written in diary style, like a young person. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 teresa | 1/13/2012

    " my five year old twins love all of doreen cronin's books. "
