13 Ways to Eat a Fly – Charlesbridge

Summary:  Zapped, wrapped, trapped, or poked: those are a few of the ways flies get eaten by other animals.  Each method is accompanied by a cartoon illustration along with a few sentences of text describing how the fly is trapped and consumed.  The last few pages give nutrition facts for flies, show their edible parts, and offer lists of books and websites, as well as a selected bibliography.  32 pages; ages 4-8.

Pros:  The emphasis on the gross-out factor, reinforced in the illustrations, will undoubtedly have readers flocking to this book like the proverbial flies to honey.

Cons:  If flies are such easy prey, why are there still so many of them around?
