This is a humorous look at the common housefly. Although the illustrations are pretty silly, we learn lots of interesting and disgusting facts about the housefly. For instance, a fly can only eat fluids, so he vomits on his food, lets the digestive fluids soften it up and then he sucks it down. See what else you can learn by reading 'The Fly' as well as the other books in the 'Disgusting Critters' series by Elise Gravel.

Fly, Cher Ami, Fly is a true story about a carrier pigeon named Cher Ami (Dear Friend). During World War I, a battalion of American soldiers was lost and surrounded by Germans. Without food, water, and radio communications, their only hope of rescue was to get a message sent to their camp by carrier pigeon. Cher Ami bravely survived rifle fires, attacks by enemy hawks, and strong winds. Upon his arrival at camp, the battalion's comrades were able to read the map attached to Cher Ami's leg and quickly set out to rescue their friends. Cher Ami was a true hero and today his body may be seen in Washington, D.C. at the National Museum of History.

Have you ever seen a walking octopus? How about a rolling spider? Steve Jenkins gives us yet another fascinating book about animals. Each four page spread focuses on a different method of movement. The first page shows a particular animal, such as a walking octopus, that moves in a way that we may not expect. The next two page spread shows several animals moving in a similar manner such as a waddling batfish, a strolling sea pig or a marching millipede. The book ends by revisiting each creature with a few interesting facts.
