KIRKUS REVIEW

When Buzz and his parents take a road trip, pet-of-sorts Fly Guy stows away in the trunk. Rather than getting lost, as Dad fears, the insect displays effortless adaptive skills. He surfs at the beach, smooches a Mona Lisa look-alike at the art museum and rides the roller coaster at the fun park, finding snacks aplenty in trashcans en route. When Dad loses the way home, Fly Guy rises to the rescue, using “his super fly eyes to spy their house.” Arnold delivers another engaging romp that combines a spare but never stilted text and child-appealing pictures (wherein even the figures in museum paintings are bug-eyed). From the very shiny cover’s dizzying perspective to the heroic conclusion, this fifth outing’s a shoo-in for kids who prefer their beginning readers funny and action-packed. (Early reader. 4-7)
