I read 5 pages of this 115 page illustrated, novel. . . Super Fly: The World’s Smallest Superhero! by Todd H. Doddler. That’s all it took to realize this book is going to be a hit. Particularly with the Kindergarten through 3rd grade set obsessed with the word poop. Notice I did not single out boys. I’m amazed at how often the words poop and pee come out of ML and her friends’ mouths. I do not remember having this fascination in elementary school.
Now for a synopsis from the publisher, Bloomsbury. “From just a tiny larva in diapers to . . . SUPER FLY! This is the story of Eugene Flystein, a small and nerdy, mild-mannered housefly, who also happens to be the world’s smallest superhero and humanity’s greatest crime fighter.
SUPER FLY!: Able to stop tornadoes from destroying towns with just one breath.
Strong enough to push a ship away from a looming iceberg.
He’s even read every book in the library twice. Yes, twice!
Can this four-eyed little bugger, along with his trusty sidekick Fantastic Flea, take on Crazy Cockroach and his army of insect baddies? It’s housefly vs. cockroach in this epic battle of good vs. evil. Who will come out on top? Stay tuned!”
