It is a dark and stormy night and Buzz and his pet fly, Fly Guy, are having a grand time playing together. Buzz makes monster puzzles and monster costumes that the friends play with, and then he makes a drawing of both of them. In the drawing Buzz looks like Frankenstein and Fly Guy looks like a bat.

   Eventually it is time to go to sleep. Buzz climbs into bed, but Fly Guy is “bizzy” doing something on Buzz’s desk. Buzz nods off wondering what Fly Guy is doing, and when he wakes up later in the night he sees that Fly Guy is creating something in his laboratory. To his horror, Buzz sees that Fly Guy is making a monster! A Frankenfly monster.

   In this delightful Fly Guy title, readers will get a spine tingling thrill when they see what happens when Fly Guy creates a monster. With three short chapters and art work on every page this is a perfect title for beginner readers.
