I, fly : the buzz about flies and how awesome they are Cover
Bridget Heos
Jennifer Plecas, illustrator
Fly is fed up with everyone studying butterflies. After all, flies go through metamorphosis too--and they are so much cooler. They flap their wings 200 times a second, compared to a butterfly's measly five to twelve times. Their babies--maggots--are much cuter than caterpillars (obviously). And when they eat solid food, they even throw up on it to turn it into a liquid. Who wouldn't want to study an insect like that? Both funny and informative, this earnest (and highly partisan) narrator provides a refreshing new perspective on his fascinating species.
