Ruth Paul
Bye-Bye Grumpy Fly
Scholastic 2015   $19.00pb   24pp
ISBN 978 1 7754 3318 7
Themes: Being grumpy/ Flies/ Stories in rhyme
A grumpy frog, a tiger and a crocodile on a grey and gloomy day down by the water.  Everyone is in a bit of a mood. You would think that between them they would be able to catch one pesky little fly as an in-between meal times snack. But no, somehow he always eludes them. Then happily for them all, even the fly, all the activity lifts the grumpy moods and the story ends positively. As well as the generous illustrations that swirl across every page, the story is told in mouth-watering language that is a pleasure to read aloud and share with children.
