One night Buzz shows his pet fly, Fly Guy, a book he has written. In the story, Buzz is as small as Fly Guy and they are both superheroes. The two little superheroes wake up one morning to discover that pirates came in the night and carried Buzz Boy and Fly Guy’s house to a far away island, where they put the house inside a dragon’s cave. The two superheroes are in a very bad situation, but they don’t give up. Instead, they set about using their superpowers, and their brains – to defeat their enemies.

Children who like stories about superheroes and outlandish adventures are such to enjoy this easy reader title. Buzz’s story is presented in a simple format that is reminiscent of comic books.
